Djela's grandfather, Psin Khan, has returned as head of the Merkit tribe from fighting the enemies of the Mongols.

A trusted member of the Kha Khan's court, Psin is always ready and willing to entertain Djela with stories of bravery and sacrifice.

Djela wants to prove that he too can live up to his family name.

And when his father praises him during archery practise he is sure he is about to receive his first adult bow.

But then everything goes wrong.

To protect his friend Djela lies to his father.

And no Mongol could tolerate a deliberate untruth...

Djela is sent off to the far north station as punishment, herding the family flocks of cattle and horses for a month.

There was nothing Djela hated more.

But there was excitement at the North Camp he had not anticipated.

Some of the men insisted that a ghost tiger was killing their calves.

Whatever it was, it eventually became Djela's job to track it down.

And it was in his relentless pursuit of the mysterious beast that he became a true heir to his grandfather...
