Central Otago’s searing summer has been long and brutal. And yet somehow the sheep and smaller creatures on Stonefields Station have survived. That’s until Garth Fischer arrives, along with his gun and plans to change things in a big way … ways that are good for Garth Fischer, but nothing else.
Then three youngsters make an important discovery in Skink Gully. Tamsin, the farm manager’s daughter, and city kids, Dylan and Nimish, must now take on Fischer to protect their find. But the man will go to any length to get his way, even if that means destroying the gully and everything that lives there.
