Dance of the Snow Dragon

ISBN: 978-1-895449-41-9


Dance of the Snow Dragon is an engrossing tale of spiritual develpment and magical wonder set in the Buddhist enclaves of the Himalayas. This unique coming-of-age novel allows for in-depth comparisons between Far Eastern mysticism and North American adventure.

“Kernaghan unwinds this tale with powerful force and tight control.”
Quill & Quire.

“This is one of the best fantasies for young people that I have read for some time.”
Vancouver Sun.
