Book description
Grandfather Ningi has often told his grandson the story of the Yellow-eye, how they are plentiful in the lake after Yanatji, a flower, has bloomed. But the fish are becoming scarce which is troubling the Newmob (whites) as well as the Impatjara. The Newmob think the fish depletion will be due to cattle grazing, the weir or the copper mine but the Elders know the cause will have something to do with Yanatji.
Grandfather won't tell, he has to be asked, and his grandson sees this clearly and begs for something to be done. When there is proper communication ancient knowledge and modern science work together to find the cause.
An optimistic picture of cultural cooperation which emphasises the delicate balances in nature. [Magpies]
Haiku summary
