Set in the Kimberley region in north-west Australia, this is the true story of a young Aboriginal man who, along with his people, suffered injustice and imprisonment. To the settlers, he was an outlaw to be hunted. To the Bunuba, he was a courageous defender of his country, taking part in ambushes and hiding out in his territory. This story does not end well but is told in a suitable style for young readers.
Mark Greenwood's text and Terry Denton's pencil, pen and ink and watercolour illustrations bring to life this story of conflict and divided loyalties. It is a tragic but important part of Australia's frontier history. Mark Greenwood and Terry Denton are non-Indigenous creators.
