Secondhand. Good condition. Wear to book corners and edges.
On Christmas Day 1957, Joe Trevorrow walked through the blistering heat to seek help for his sick baby boy. When relatives agreed to take Bruce to the hospital, Joe was relieved – his son was in safe hands – but within days Bruce would be living with another family and Joe would never see his son again.
At the age of 10, Bruce would be returned to his Indigenous family, sparking a lifelong search for an identity that could never truly be known and a court case that made history.
