Summary
As the library burns, Peter and his father flee their home, taking with them a book more precious than jewels - a book that tells the story of their people. When Peter loses his father and has to walk over the mountains, he must bury their treasure in an iron box to protect it, leaving it behind
Summary
A moving and hopeful tribute to the resiliency of the human spirit when war forces people to flee their homes traces the story of young refugee Peter, who carries a cherished family possession throughout a difficult period of survival before reflecting on its importance years later
