The first-ever novel by a Papuan author, this story of generosity, greed, and resilience follows the friendship of Andevavait, a tide-pool blenny; Bohurai, a greedy toad-fish; and Anggereai, an observant striped-crab, as they adventure amongst tidal rock-pools and upon the shore. In this ecological parable, John Waromi shows the effects of “harvesting the storm” and reaping the results of actions beyond our control. He sheds light on not only the ecology of the southern Papuan coast but also the lives of its people and their culture that has always sustained natural diversity and maintained a balance with nature over the centuries.
