The first-ever novel by a Papuan author, this tale of generosity, greed, and resilience follows the friendship of three underwater creatures. From the shores of West Papua in eastern Indonesia, the story of the life of the Ambai tribe is told through the friendship of Andevavait the blenny fish, Bohurai the toadfish and Anggereai the striped crab. When the environment is damaged, the harmony of the creatures that inhabit it is also disrupted. Can the Ambai tribe stay true to their local wisdom and traditional beliefs to maintain the balance of nature In this ecological parable, author John Waromi, a member of the Ambai tribe, sheds light on not only the ecology of the southern Papuan coast but also the struggle of the indigenous Papuan people to survive the environmental destruction that is inflicted upon them.
