The Dry Lands

By Simon J. Townley

Action & adventure, Historical fiction, Literary fiction, Hybrid & other, General fiction, Young adult | Paperback, eBook


Isolated by a changing climate, hemmed in by arid wasteland, a band of prehistoric humans faces extinction. They have too many mouths to feed - the tribes have grown too big. They’ve hunted too fiercely, and the animals are gone. The waterholes are dry, the rains don’t come. Their world has changed, and they need a way out. As the young men of the tribe go in search of a new home, Temfe, the chief’s son, must learn to lead his clansmen before they betray him. To survive in a harsh world, surrounded by enemies, he must gather new allies, discover new weapons and learn new ways of seeing the world. In the African rift valley, 43,000 years BCE, a spark of consciousness flares into life. The dawn of human culture, the fire that will reshape the world. Book one of the series ‘A Tribal Song - Tales of the Koriba’
