When he takes his sheep and goats to graze in the mountains, Gulla is always careful of bears and leopards, the terrible Banbudhiya, and also of the men with guns. But one day he sees a little hangul being chased by wild dogs and he forgets to be careful. In rushing to save the deer, Gulla goes deeper and deeper into the forest. This story from Kashmir, where the hangul is a protected animal, carries the many shades and tones of the region the quiet life of the villagers in the valley, their close link with nature, as well as the underlying disquiet that they learn to live with. This rugged, rocky and less familiar part of the beautiful state is evoked by the illustrations with a soft charm.
