Since the publication of her prize-winning memoir Craft for a Dry Lake, in 2000, writer and artist Kim Mahood has been returning to the Tanami desert country in far north-western Australia where, as a child, she lived with her family on a remote cattle station.
The land is timeless, but much has changed- the station has been returned to its traditional owners, the mining companies have arrived, and Aboriginal art has flourished.
Comedy and tragedy, familiarity and uncertainty are Mahood's constant companions as she immerses herself in the life of a small community and groundbreaking mapping projects. What emerges in Position Doubtful is a revelation of the significance of the land to its people and the burden of history.
This is a beautiful and intense exploration of friendships, landscape, and homecoming. Written with great energy and humour, Position Doubtful offers a unique portrait of the complexities of black-and-white relations in contemporary Australia. (back cover)
