Sinopsis: A coastal community live prosperously crafting fine stone tools. But their proud insularity is breached by raiders, and in the violence a boy loses his arm. Useless as a knapper, he finds a role as the village storyteller, roaming far and returning home with fantastically embellished tales. When the arrival of a new metal threatens all their livelihoods, his fearless imagination becomes a lifesaving gift.
Sinopsis: First published in 1988 and now reissued in paperback, a historical novel set in a Stone Age Village at the advent of the Bronze Age. The skills of the stoneworkers ensures their daily survival but their resistance to change casts a shadow over their futures, especially when a defiant woman enters their village, a harbinger of inevitable change.
