Author(s): Robert Drewe
This story, of a tragic, cruel, brave and misguided episode in Australia's history - the "saving" of the Tasmanian Aboriginies - is seen through the eyes of an obsessive young narrator, looking back over time. It portrays the collision of worlds, generations and mythologies.
