Then trapped alone in a howling blizzard he is taken by a tribe of high mountain creatures, perhaps yetis, but not quite human and comes to be treated as the re-embodiment of their almost supernatural, white-skinned god-cum-ruler of years earlier. the two share a bond and an experience and such comradeship that is more precious to them than anything else.

Back in the days of the Boys' Own Paper those yetis would have been portrayed as either savage or playfully childish King Kongs. He travels all over the UK and abroad talking to people of all ages at literary festivals, telling his stories and encouraging them to tell theirs. he lives with the yeti for an year and learns about their life and their ways - his experience with the Yeti touches his life as nothing else. As he grows from fiery kitten to grand old tomcat he is always special, independent and a law unto himself.
