A story of separation and the strength of family, Lost Riders is a powerful and thought-provoking novel from award-winning author Elizabeth Laird.

Taken from their home in Pakistan to work in the Persian Gulf, eight-year-old Rashid and his little brother Shari cling to each other. Then they are separated and forced to become jockeys in the lucrative camel-racing business. Rashid is starved and worked to exhaustion by harsh supervisors - but he has a talent for racing and quickly becomes his stable's star jockey. Soon he begins to forget what life was like when he had a proper home. He almost begins to forget about Shari . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
"From a highly respected author whose books consistently expose political and social injustice comes this gut-wrenching story about modern-day slavery. The story is meticulously researched." --The Good Book Guide
"It is a tough book but the children feel real, there is light and shade and, at the very end, a homecoming." --Carousel Magazine
