A Bone from a Dry Sea
One small body curled around the mass of sleepers. Different. Yes, I'm different...Four million years ago, then, a young girl - Li - lives with her tribe along the shores of a mothering sea. But Li is different. A thinker, a questioner, her sense of wonder and intuition could help shape the future of her race. In Africa, now, on the site of that very same plain - Vinny visits her father who is working as part of a team searching for fossil remains of our ancestors. Fascinated by the tiny fragments of bone that are painstakingly dug out of the ground, Vinny's curiosity helps lead the team towards a major discovery...This title is an enthralling and original tale from the award-winning author of "Tulku".
