Thousands of years in the future, seven year-old Mara and her brother, Dann, are abducted in the middle of the night. Raised among hostile -Rock people, ' they eventually join the great migration north, away from the draught that is turning the land to desert. Trekking across a barren countryside, Mara and Dann move through a diversity of peoples and places and survive many hazardous adventures. Mara's mind is as restless as her feet, as she hungers for answers: Who are my parents? Where do I come from? What will we find up north? With an unquenchable thirst to learn and a compassionate nature that survives despite all odds, Mara is one of Lessing's greatest heroines.
