Little Dog Moon free pdf "You must not use the mountain road."
"We know no other way," the girl told him.
"Perhaps not, but moon does," answered Tenzin. He knelt down to stroke the long hair from the little dog's eyes.
"Take them. Show them the way."

A young monk is moved by the bravery of two children journeying alone to the freedom of Nepal. He offers what help he can--a hot bowl of soup, a warm bed for the night--but he realizes their best chance lies with Moon. She is the little dog who knows the unguarded paths out of the mountains, the very dog who will leave an ache in his heart when she goes.

This story was inspired by the sacrifice and courage of those who struggle to be free. It is not uncommon in Tibet for parents to send their children into the treks through the mountains in the hope they will find refuge in Nepal. During the winter when the passes are not heavily guarded, the bitter cold is considered a smaller threat than remaining at home. Many such children have made it, many have turned back, many more have simply disappeared.
