More About A Bone from a Dry Sea by Peter Dickinson
 
 
 
Overview
On a prehistoric shore, a young girl fights to help her tribe survive

She is at home in the ocean, as comfortable in the water as she is on dry land. The child's people have made their homes by the bay for as long as anyone can remember, diving for mussels and any other food the ocean will serve to them. They have no language; they have no names. Although they know love and jealousy and pride, they are not quite human--not yet. This child of the sea will show them the way.

Two million years later, Vinny is visiting her father at an archaeological site in Africa when they discover the remains of that forgotten tribe of cliff dwellers. Across the ocean of time, these two young women will find a connection, an inexplicable bond that builds slowly but arrives with all the power of a tidal wave.

This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Peter Dickinson including rare images from the author's collection.
