"Boori, the young warrior, must go on a journey.  to repay his debt to Perentie, the Old Man of the Hill of Opals, he must seek and fight the savage warrior Dingo, win his friendship and outwit the thieving Pukwudgies.  On the way he overcomes many perils, from water women and from Ganba the Rainbow Snake, greatest being of all.  When he returns from the inland deserts to his coastal home, he discovers that there are yet desperate dangers to be overcome; for the Melong, spirit of water and gatherer of storms, oppresses his people.  And even that may not be the last challenge.  the ending is deliberately open, to allow for a possible sequel to Boori."
