- DescriptionA compelling vel set in Tibet, Mongolia, and China, about the adventures of a fiercely powerful yet lovable Tibetan mastiff. Kelsang is just a tiny puppy when his mother dies after a vicious fight with a sw leopard. As he grows he becomes a prize sheepdog, roaming the rthern Tibetan grasslands with his master Tenzin. But one day visitors ply Tenzin with drink and convince him to sell his beautiful, purebred dog. In time Kelsang finds himself chained up in the back of a jeep traveling far from everything he kws. A series of adventures take Kelsang from the streets of Lhasa to brief refuge with an elderly painter and finally to his new master Han Ma, who inspires his love and loyalty. Through it all Kelsang longs for the freedom of the grasslands. <i>Black Flame</i> proudly takes its place among much-loved classic dog stories.
