Bamba Beach Paperback
Part of the White Wolves: Stories from Different Cultures series
Hari's family are fisher folk, but with no fish left in their bay, times are hard.
In order to catch the ones further out they need a flat-bottomed boat with an outboard motor, not a rickety, coconut-wood vessel.
But in order to get one of these they need capital, and in order to get capital they need to sell fish...Hari is a boy with a heart of gold, who rises above his humble origins, striving to help his family and show everyone that family feuds and village superstitions are better off forgotten.
Bamba Beach is a contemporary Indian story set in Goa.
