A thought provoking story set two hundred years in the future when global warming has caused most of the earth to be covered by water. Managing on a tiny diet, The Tekkies live on a fortified island. But their resources are dwindling and all too soon they will run out of fresh water. What they need most is rain. When a girl and her lion cub arrive it looks as if she’ll make all the difference. Can she save the world from being swallowed up by the sea?

Synopsis

Remembering Green by Lesley Beake

It is the year 2250. The ice has melted and sea levels have risen. Cape Town has disappeared and Table Mountain is now an island inhabited by the Tekkies, who cling to a lifestyle long gone in the rest of the world. But their resources are running out.

They look to the land that once was Africa - known as Out - where a few remaining people have managed to survive the massive drought by turning their back on 23rd-century technology and following a simple lifestyle based on ancient knowledge. They are the River People. Rain, a princess of the River People, and Saa, the lion cub she cares for, are seized by the Tekkies. They want the knowledge of Rain's people. They want to know how to harvest the rain. She is to be part of a terrible ceremony to restore the balance of the world!
