Jeffrey
Nugi Garimara/Doris Pilkington's first book, winner of the David Unaipon Award for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders writers - moving account of the lives of three generations of aboriginal women in Australia - a really powerful and poignant novel - one can see why she so wanted to tell the story of the rabbit proof fence and her mother's and aunts' story
Bronwyn Riley
A short, simple story about a not so simple topic...follows the lives of three generations of indigenous women - inter marriage, tribal law, removal of children, missionary schools and rediscovering heritage.
