“Granddad, granddad,” Sonny called, and ran towards the old man who was seated in his favourite armchair on the veranda overlooking the bay. “The whales are back. Are you coming, granddad? Here comes my Dad.”
Arthur spoke to his father, the last of the great whaling hunters, “Dad, it's the same ones, right on time; third time in a row. The scarred one is with them. This means they are safe.”
“Yes, it seems so. You'd better get a move on, or they'll be gone.”
Two men and a girl changed the lot of the poverty-stricken Kiah tribe. David Guduru, a Kiah tribesman, and Arthur Clark, a close friend and part aboriginal and Roxy Hughes, joined forces and brought into being the idea of creating the bountiful underwater sea farm. Roxy was badly injured unintentionally by a huge humpback whale while diving for abalone. This led to an amazing revelation and the determination to save the whales in the Southern Ocean of Australia. She took on the Japanese whaling people and nearly lost her life in the process.
Two childhood sweethearts fell in love while still at high school and their love grew and eventually encompassed the whole Diliga community. Roxy and Arthur changed the lives of almost everyone they came in contact with in the remote Kiah community.
This is a love story and saga that encapsulated a whole community, but there was much danger in what they did ...
