Simon Brent, orphan, came to live on a lonely sheep farm in the Wongadilla, the Hunter Valley of Australia, and there learned the lore of the ancient aboriginal spirit creatures of the Dreamtime: the Potkoorok with its tricks; the Turongs, working havoc with the road workers' equipment; the Nyols rustling and whispering in the rocks. Now the Nargun, a stonelike creature as old as the earth itself, sometimes peaceful, sometimes prone to savage angers, had come to Wongadilla, threatening the peace of the valley. What sort of bargain could an orphaned boy make with a Power out of the depths of time?
