Description

I would've also liked to have more information on Ashley's father , about whether he was alive at the very end of the book . When battling the hostile environments of the mountains, and finding himself alone in an unfamiliar world, Ashley’s courage is put to the test. It is a deceptively simple story but written with such style that at times it becomes breathtaking to read. In 1987 they become an endangered species with their own culture, pseudo-language and religion, deserving their place in the world.

Several of his other stories have been adapted for screen and stage, including My Friend Walter, Why the Whales Came and Kensuke's Kingdom. If there is a failing in the book it is that: Ashley would not have done well growing up in the Empire.

A true first edition, first printing (first impression) with 'First Published 1987' to the copyright page to indicate a true first print in a fine Dust Jacket.

Then trapped alone in a howling blizzard he is taken by a tribe of high mountain creatures, perhaps yetis, but not quite human and comes to be treated as the re-embodiment of their almost supernatural, white-skinned god-cum-ruler of years earlier. Michael Morpurgo, began writing stories in the early '70's, in response to the children in his class at the primary school where he taught in Kent. this was so well written that for a second i genuinely thought it was realistic that a man could get lost and some monkey species would take care of him, name them his king and he would learn their language. In February Foot and Mouth disease broke out in England and quickly reached Devon, but would it infect the farm Becky lived on?Seller has stated it will dispatch the item within 1 working day upon receipt of cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab . The rest of the story describes how Ashley is reunited with Uncle Sung and travels to England where he meets and, along with Uncle Sung, comes to live with his relatives and also succeeds in piecing together the reasons for his status among the Yetis.
