Along his journey Dorje meets three people. He helps each of them and comes to realize that it is the size of his heart that matters. Dorje the Yak is a story of the struggle of Tibet, a story of the importance of having compassion for one another. Gold winner of the 2019 Nautilus Book Award for Children's Illustrated Fiction Book, Dorje the Yak is a unique tale that will warm your heart.
