Kunzang is a strange child of nature, with hair as wild and red as the rhododendrons she lives among. People say that one look from her crimson eyes can make wishes come true. She rides untroubled on her graceful kiang through Sikkim’s Yumthang valley. But then along comes the powerful king, Bhu-pen, who sees the kiang and wants it…A lyrical story with vibrant pictures that are a fusion of impression and detail, capturing the unrestrained beauty of nature in the wild.
