Secondhand. Very good condition. Minor edgewear.
The thrilling story of the great warrior, Jandamarra, who turned from police assistant to resistance fighter.
Thought to be unstoppable, he led his people against the white forces invading their land. A legend, forever etched into the history of the Kimberley, Jandamarra's courage and fighting spirit made him one of the region's most wanted men.
The scene is the magnificent Kimberley, late nineteenth century and the last stage of Australia's invasion is about to be played out, in the lands of the Bunuba. A tiny outpost of colonial administration is planted on the desolate mudflats of King Sound, at Derby. Leases are marked on a map covering huge areas. Vast herds of cattle and sheep spread out.
Amidst the chaos and turmoil that ensues, extraordinary relationships grow. An indomitable human spirit and the power of country reaches beyond the searing past for the triumph of a reconciled future. (backcover)
