Life on the plains and grasslands of the world is about movement, freedom and livestock. The Nyangatom of southern Ethiopia have fought and won a rangeland for themselves, but they and their herds of cattle and goats are totally reliant on gigantic wells. At the height of the dry season a huge collective well is dug down on the dry bed of the Kibish River.
