Youngberg, Norma R

A boy comes of age in this gripping tale of good vs. evil. Rimau, "Menga-Rajah-Segala-Harimau—Great Ruler of all Tigers," the young son of Chief Feermin, is the central character. He is faced with a compelling set of circumstances which includes firsthand knowledge of Gadoh's revenge. "Koosta, Koosta" (leprosy), a curse cast upon the young Rimau by the witch doctor, is only one of the many obstacles facing our young hero. As the story unfolds, Rimau's special relationship with Tigers is explored. Possessing the "magic of the tigers" in his blood is Rimau's secret weapon.
