The creature held a great bundle of something tied up in a rag. For a moment we stared, not recognizing him, but who else could it have been, who else but wandering Tin. We saw his naked limbs, his discoloured hair, his hooking razor-sharp nails. He raised lashy eyes to us and we saw a face on its way to another world.Through the long years of the Great Depression, Harper Flute watches with a child's clear eyes her family's struggle to survive in a hot and impoverished landscape. As life on the surface grows harsher, her brother Tin escapes ever deeper into a subterranean world of darkness and troubling secrets, until his memory becomes a myth barely whispered around the countryside.

    " Wow! Tin has been a digger ever since he was no longer the baby of the family, living underground and silently observing the experiences of his family living through the Great Depression. Harper, the next youngest of the six surviving children tells the story of her mother and father coaxing a living off a nonproductive homestead that used to be a gold mine. "

    " This is right up there in the list of books I would buy just for kids I will someday have. Sonya Hartnett paints a picture like no other. She's a bittersweet writer, but her prose is spare and golden. "
