Narrated by Stephen Briggs
Written by Terry Pratchett

When a giant wave destroys his village, Mau is the only one left. Daphne—a traveler from the other side of the globe—is the sole survivor of a shipwreck. Separated by language and customs, the two are united by catastrophe. Slowly, they are joined by other refugees. And as they struggle to protect the small band, Mau and Daphne defy ancestral spirits, challenge death himself, and uncover a long-hidden secret that literally turns the world upside down.

“A wonderful story, by turns harrowing and triumphant.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Pratchett’s examination of questions about religious belief, the nature of culture and what it means to be human... A terrific, thought-provoking book.” (Washington Post Book World)
