Tiyo has no memory of the great war, but he sees the aftermath in thirsty, drought-stricken land. To save his people, he undertakes a dangerous quest across the great desert to the sipapuni, the sacred pool where the world began. But Renegades, men who prey on human flesh, guard the pool. Tiyo must find a way to get the life-saving water. But will the cost be more than he can bear?
