book cover of Taur


(The second book in the Travellers series)
A novel by

Pursued by the hateful Salt Men, Ish flees south with his friend Taur, the mute Bull Man. But nowhere is there refuge from the brutal Squint-face, who wants his greenstone god back, and wants Ishs life. Across the ice loom the mountains of the South Land. Is there a future there, in the land of the mountain that ate the sun? Is there escape from the relentless pursuit?

Here is the riveting sequel to award-winning Because We Were the Travellers by master story-teller, Jack Lasenby. In a future where the elements have scoured the land, and the sun turned enemy, Ishs dream is simply to find peace, a place, and a people to call his own.
