AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Sam's elderly grandfather is sick. He asks Sam and his friend Naomi to bring back some magic water from a spring deep in the forest where the purest water on Earth runs from a crack between the rocks. On their journey Sam and Naomi encounter the Bunyip, the beautiful Fairy, the greedy Gnome, the cunning Goblin, the evil Wizard and the ethereal Sprites, the guardians of the spring.
