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 . . .
