Mining is slowly devastating the land, upsetting the balance between development and the environment. Dingo, Wombat, Crow and their friends watch as the trees are cut down and the river stops flowing. They all have to find a way to work together to save their home before there is nowhere left for them to live. Gladys and Jill Milroy, both from the Pilbara, continue a tradition of protecting country and culture through storytelling. This engaging, simply written and brightly illustrated environmental story for children delivers an important message. Gladys believes "You've got to tell the children. If you teach children to care for the country and care for animals, maybe they can talk to the adults and tell them it's not all about money "
