Bobby Wabalanginy never learned fear, not until he was pretty well a grown man. Sure, he grew up doing the Dead Man Dance, but with him, it was a dance of life, a lively dance for people to do together...
Told through the eyes of black and white, young and old, this is a story about a fledgling Western Australian community in the early 1800s known as the 'friendly frontier'.
Poetic, warm-hearted and bold, it is a story that shows that first contact did not have to lead to war.
