In the last years of the nineteenth century, a caravan of traders sets off from the high hills of Kumaon, India, for Tibet. They traverse dangerous passes and brave blinding snowstorms, in order to carry on their traditional trade in the Tibetan markets. Among them is fourteen-year-old Debu’s father.

They traverse dangerous passes and brave blinding snowstorms, in order to carry on their traditional trade in the Tibetan markets. Among them is fourteen-year-old Debu’s father. Many days later, when the caravan returns, Debu is heartbroken to learn that his father was lost in one of the treacherous passes. Somehow he cannot believe it, and when a Tibetan trader turns up in the local market wearing an amulet remarkably similar to his father’s, he is convinced that his father is alive, somewhere in Tibet. Debu joins the next caravan to Tibet to look for his father, little knowing he is setting out on the most perilous, yet most exciting journey of his life. The adventures follow thick and fast—a forced stay in a monastery with a young lama who takes a fancy to him; his capture by a band of bandits led by the cruel, mysterious Nangbo gifted with magical powers; a stay in the goldfields of Thok Jalong; and finally ending with a heart-pounding, breathtaking horse race.

    A desperate journey to a forbidden land, mysterious lamas, ferocious robber chiefs and a boy discovering an inner lode of strength—that’s what Caravan to Tibet is all about. This coming of age story set in the nineteenth-century Tibet teems with memorable characters and vividly depicts the unique culture of an adventurous tribe, the Shaukas, living on the Indo-Tibetan border. This spellbinding biographical portrait of Debui excavates both a gripping story and a vivid account of the tribes of the A desperate journey to a forbidden land, mysterious lamas, ferocious robber chiefs and a boy discovering an inner lode of strength—that’s what Caravan to Tibet is all about. This coming of age story set in the nineteenth-century Tibet teems with memorable characters and vividly depicts the unique culture of an adventurous tribe, the Shaukas, living on the Indo-Tibetan border. This spellbinding biographical portrait of Debui excavates both a gripping story and a vivid account of the tribes of the Himalayas, Deepa Agarwal does a fabulous work of interwoving and creating a story out of the threads of geography, culture and teeming and lucid narrative. ever since I have started reading Deepa Agarwal’s books – the first of which was “You cannot have all the answers and other stories”, I have become a fan of her. writing travel accounts- which somehow the story is but not at all exactly exhilarating like that- is a critical subject and more critical are it’s retelling- as the author has never gone there herself but has written it as per her relative's experience in those terrains- as if you do not know the tale properly and cannot narrate it in a gripping way then the reader would not find it interesting. the best part of the book is its beauty in the simplicity of language and the complex and gripping narrative. I felt that the beauty of the enchanting narration makes the book truly a “masterpiece”. one cannot put down the book in the middle if you have started once. for the narration, it is just mind-boggling. the way she captures each character and emotions in her pen would leave you enthralled. adding to that are the intense dialogues and the impact they create on your mind. this book would leave a mark in your heart. the book is even very intensely researched for there is a lot of details about how these tribes in the snowy mountains lived, ate and how they maintained their culture. the story shows different aspects of morality within it, there are hidden messages of courage, perseverance, patience, struggle and all qualities of a hero. the book totally is worth reading. and if you have not read it, it is totally your huge loss. overall the book is in simple words a “masterpiece”.a perfect tapestry of history and imagination. not only children, each and everyone can relate to this story of this child, Debu. imaginative. intrigue. intense. I would recommend the book to all the history lovers and to children who love reading lovely and interesting children stories and I am sure they would love the gripping story.

    Yes, it is meant for kids and an easy-read. But one cannot miss the simplicity with which the writer brings out the innocence and the simple rituals of the simple folks of Tibetan and our cold places of Himachal.
