The Crystal Fountain
David Morgan Williams Other books by David Morgan Williams
This is the story of Capra, an ibex, who lives in the mountains of Ethiopia, in north-east Africa.
Capra has been injured in a rockfall, and is unable to walk.
But her friends, Omo and Asha, find a way to carry her to Lake Tana, which has healing waters.
Once they arrive there, they are helped by two animal friends, Henry the hippo and Crocus the crocodile.
They float her out into the lake on a giant lily pad, and soon she is bathing beneath the healing bubbles of the crystal fountain.
