Description - The River and the Book by Alison Croggon

Combining magical realism and fable, this lyrical tale is the story of a landscape and community destroyed by Western greediness.

Simbala is a Keeper, the latest in a long line of women who can read the Book to find answers to people's questions. When developers begin to poison the River on which Simbala's village relies, the Book predicts change. But this does not come in the form they expect; it is the sympathetic foreigner who comes to stay who inflicts the greatest damage of all.
