In bygone days, the world was laid to waste by development that destroyed the land and most of its inhabitants. The Awohali peoples weathered the catastrophic reset of the earth’s soul and subsisted in alliance with the lands. Nowadays, the elders teach the young about the importance of knowing their family record and walking in the strength and wisdom of their forbearers.

During their perilous journey through Kahawa to Shaba Valley, the squad discovers their superior perception and physical capabilities when stalked and assaulted by creatures that prowl the forests of Daksi Babu.
The mystery of her natural family is hidden in the swamps of Shaba Valley. Because she does not know her kin, Chana sulks while witnessing friends grow in the traditions of their familial lineage. She convinces one friend to join her search while the others take an injured mate back to the village. The pair must overcome harrowing obstacles to find the red bird and get back in time for the jubilee. Chana wrestles with the fear of disappointing her father or what may come if she finds her true identity. Yet, she must pull courage from the ancestors to complete her mission.

To find out, follow the Awi Squad as they trek through the woodlands of Daksi Babu.

“I have written poetry most of my adult life. Whenever I performed one of my poems before a group, I was encouraged that others would enjoy my work. Finally, at the age of 80, I decided to put some of my poems together for this book. I trust that those who encouraged me are right!”
