A classic story set in the ancient Stone Age village of Skara Brae on Orkney, nearly 3000 years ago. Kali and Brockan are in trouble. They’re at the seashore, using their stone axes to hack limpets from the rocks, but they’ve gone too far out. Now they’re trapped by the tides. Then a rescuer appears: a strange boy in a strange boat, carrying a strangely sharp axe of a type they’ve never seen before. The boy’s new ideas and new tools soon stir up conflict in the village of Skara. As a deadly storm threatens, the very survival of Kali and Brockan’s community is in doubt…
