An Indian orphan boy on a journey of a lifetime

Bartholomäus is an orphan boy from Bombay, about twelve years old, and he speaks almost as many languages. Th is is why he is hired by the German Schlagintweit brothers, who, with the support of Alexander von Humboldt, are setting o? on the greatest research expedition of their age in the year 1854. Th ey employ Bartholomäus as their translator for their journey through India and the Himalayas. Bartholomäus’ fascination with these men is tinged with distrust. Why are these three Germans measuring his country? Why are they collecting so many objects, and risking their lives to cross these unfamiliar mountains? But this is his homeland – and aft er all he wants to become the man who establishes India’s fi rst museum.

A fabulous adventure story that will change the way we view this amazing, contradictory country, as well as our own history.
