The yield in English is the reaping, the things that man can take from the land. In the language of the Wiradjuri yield is the things you give to, the movement, the space between things- baayanha. Knowing that he will soon die, Albert 'Poppy' Gondiwindi takes pen to paper. His life has been spent on the banks of the Murrumby River at Prosperous House, on Massacre Plains. Albert is determined to pass on the language of his people and everything that was ever remembered. August has been living on the other side of the world for ten years when she learns of her grandfather's death. She returns home for his burial, but her homecoming is bittersweet as she confronts the news that Prosperous is to be repossessed by a mining company. Determined to make amends for ever leaving she endeavours to save their land - a quest that leads her to the voice of her grandfather and into the past, the stories of her people, the secrets of the river.
