Long, long ago, herdsmen of the grasslands were often forced to suffer through harsh winters. After weeks of violent storms, thick snows covered everything. There will be no firewood. There would be no food for the animals. Many lambs and calves froze to death, if they were not killed by hunger. All these, people said, were the work of the snow demon living at the foot of the QiLian Mountains. To save the grasslands, a young man called Mola volunteered to go to the Sun God for help.
