Camel Rider--#34 finished

A good young adult story about an Aussie boy in a Middle Eastern country that is under attack.  The westerners convoy out of the area, but had left the boy's dog at the house/compound, which being a 12 year old, was all he could think of.  He slips away at a gas stop a few hours out and heads into the mountains in an attempt to get back to the house for the dog.  In the mountains, he meets a boy about his age that was put their by his masters because a camel he was in charge of broke a leg and had to be put down.  He is from Bangladesh but is basically a slave to these men.  The boys meet up and while they cannot talk find a way through some adventures to get back to the compound.  A nice read with a feel good ending.

I have posted it on PBS, it is the only copy in the system so it should move at some point.
