AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A small green swamp just past the edge of town is home to two wild blue-billed ducks. But one day huge, rumbling, grumbling machines crawled, scraping and gouging towards the swamp and out poured the swamp's precious water. Refugees tells the story of the duck's misadventures in trying to find a new place to live.'
