'The story starts on the eastern side. (Karrminyjarni is the name of the place.) They were hitting the water and dragging bushes through it to catch fish. Then they saw a head pop up out of the water. Maybe it was something they could eat — a water snake. They thought it was something like that anyway. But they had actually killed a baby rainbow serpent that had just hatched. '(Introduction)
