Running on the Roof of the World
There are two words that are banned in Tibet. Two words that can get you locked up in prison without a second thought. I watch the soldiers tramping away and call the words after them. ‘Dalai Lama’.
To survive in Tibet, a country occupied by Chinese soldiers, Tash has to follow many rules. But when a man sets fire to himself in protest, and soldiers seize Tash’s parents, she and her best friend are forced to break the rules.
They must escape Tibet – and seek the help of the Dalai Lama himself in India.
Join Tash and Sam in this thrilling journey, set against the vivid backdrop of the Himalayan landscape of Tibet and India.
