Old Sju fell asleep on the night watch, and now the Wolf Tribe's fire has gone out. Without fire they have to eat meat and fish raw. That's not so good, thinks Tal. Everybody is hoping that there will soon be a lightning strike which will start a fire somewhere. At last the sky darkens and it begins to thunder. Lightning strikes in the forest, and Tal runs off to find Nea and Shita. But they are not the only ones who have noticed the smoke. ”Go away,” yells the chief of the Wild Boar Tribe, waving his sword, ”This is our fire. Nobody else can take it.” But Tal and Nea and Shita don't give up. Even dangerous warriors are scared when Shita the sabre-toothed tiger appears!
The Hunt for Fire is the second book in the exciting easy-to-read series about Tal and Nea and the sabre-toothed tiger Shita from Tor Åge Bringsværd and Haakon Lie.
