A translation of a Tibetan story into English of a boy who accidentally meets a saint. Finding the boy determined and honest, the saint assigns him the task of fetching the corpse called Ro Ngodrup Gyatso from the mountain cemetery. The boy must redeem himself by carrying a talking corpse full of wondrous tales on a long journey without speaking a word. These tales of intrigue and magic provide the reader with a window through which to view ancient Tibetan culture.
