[EAN: 9781453705704], Neubuch, JOSEPH NARIMATTOM, Paperback. 145 pages. The wooded valley of the mountain goddess lies deep in the tropical woods in the Western Ghats, the South Indian mountain range, close to the giant lake among the hills. Surrounded by tall sheer cliffs, the valley is supposed to be the abode of the fierce goddess of the tribes. Nobody, not even animals, would go any where near the valley. Elephants, however, are the lieutenants of the double headed, four armed blood-thirsty goddess to whom men and women used to be sacrificed. Sabu and Rajan, both twelve, while picnicking on a raft on the lake, are caught in a thunder storm and lose their way. They land near the dreaded valley. To escape from a herd of wild elephants, they climb up a small tree. The elephants attack the tree. They scale down the sheer cliff face hanging on a climber and finally find themselves prisoners in the valley steeped in legends and superstitions. They frantically search for a way out but cannot find any. During their wanderings in the valley they come across many strange and frightening sights like heaps of skulls and bones, a skeleton lying full length on a rock, and a cave cut into the cliff face and closed and padlocked, which they guess is the hideout of the jungle thieves. Now they dread the robbers more than the fierce goddess After a few weeks, the jungle thieves arrive. The two boys hide themselves in a tree. It is too late when they realize that the four men were a search party looking for them and not a batch of robbers!They struggle to survive by trapping birds, stoning down rabbits and catching fish from the stream that flows through the valley. The two boys devise an ingenious method to escape from the valley. They make a long rope and tie it to the bough of a tall tree. They swing on the rope and land on the cliff top. They plunge into the ice-cold water and swim to a nearby islet. In an approaching boat, they find a kidnapper, his accomplice and a ten year old, blindfolded girl. By a secret passage, the trio get to the valley. Determined to save the child from captivity, the two boys find out the secret passage. By operating the hidden water-lift, one can easily enter or exit the valley. They enter the valley once again and rescue the prisoner. On their way home in a vallom , the kidnapper confronts the boys. In the encounter that follows, they defeat the criminal. The two boys return home with the rescued girl and receive a rousing reception at school. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
