As the River Runs by Stephen Scourfield

A secret plan is being cooked up to bring water from the monsoonal north of Australia to the south. But Government minister Michael Mooney needs to find out what opposition he might face around the river valley. He sends Kate Kennedy, his young, career-minded Chief of Staff, and political fixer Jack Cole on a ‘fact-finding’ trip. Ex-greenie Dylan Ward is their guide. Respected by both the mining industry and Aboriginal elder Vincent Yimi, Dylan is unaware that he has been compromised until their journey takes some unexpected turns. But as they travel through the wild river country, Kate begins to see Dylan and the world around her in a new light. As The River Runs is a powerful ode to one of Australia’s most stunning regions, from an author who writes with red dust in his veins.
