A HORSE OF MILK WHITE JADE
York : HarperCollins, 1998
fourteenth century China, it is very unusual for a girl to be riding by
herself on a horse across the country. That is just the situation
12 year old Oyuna finds herself in. When Kubla Khan's soldiers come
into her village and take her horse away with the others, Oyuna disguises
herself as a boy and joins up with the Khan's soldiers. She will
do anything to stay with her horse. She is soon found out and is
sent on by herself to deliver special bundles to the Khan himself.
Ride with Oyuna, her white mare Bayan and her tiger cat Bator as they set
across the unforgiving wilderness to deliver the Khan's bundles.
They face many adventures on the way.
