Book Description

The country Helen loves has been dry for nearly half her life. Can her entreaties to Mr Sarancen persuade him to invoke the power of the rain stones as his Aboriginal ancestors did to bring water to this parched land? 'Rain Stones' and the other stories in this collection reveal that the country is a magical place, that there is an extra dimension to be found by those whose minds and hearts are open to the possibility. Michael knows that the hills around Canberra are sleeping dinosaurs waiting for darkness to fall before they begin their nightly dance. Jacob is blind but he can show his friends things they never dreamt existed. Ages 10+
