Ratha's Creature Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Ratha's Creature

This is the story of Ratha, a wild cat living twenty-five million years ago. The story begins with her as a cub, being taught the means of survival by her mentor, Thakur, and follows her to young adulthood. Her clan is ruled by Meoran, a malicious and uncaring leader. Ratha leaves her clan for a while, discovers fire (which she calls a "creature", hence the title), and meets an interesting male cat named Bonechewer. He is of a different breed of cats that are usually mute and not so smart, but Bonechewer is an exception. They mate, and produce a female cub, Thistle-Chaser. Ratha is devastated to discover that Thistle-Chaser has inherited the gene from Bonechewer's cat family, and thus she lacks the normal level of intelligence. Ratha returns to her clan all grown up and prepared to stand up to Meoran.
