Into the River
Dawe, Ted
MUP 2012 Some rivers should not be swum in. Some rivers hold secrets than can never be told. When Te Arepa Santos is dragged into the river by a giant eel, something happens that will change the course of his whole life. The boy who struggles to the bank is not the same as the one who plunged in, moments earlier. He has brushed against the spirit world, and there is a price to be paid; an utu to be exacted. Years later, far from the protection of whanau and ancestral land he finds new enemies. This time, with no-one to save him, there is a decision to be made...he can wait on the bank, or leap forward ...into the river. This is a prequel to the award winning novel 'Thunder Road'....
