Secondhand. Very good condition. Book and dust jacket have very little edgewear.
This is an incredible story of a young person's experience when she is released from a strict, spartan mission upbringing and sent to work, as a defenceless domestic servant, on a property in a wealthy Australian farming district.
She is Aboriginal, 16 years-old and cut off from help - a 24 hour captive of an aloof and puzzling family. She, however, is a survivor, despite the petty tyranny and the humiliating treatment. This autobiography is her story told with humour, warmth and irrepressible humanity.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers please note that this book may contain descriptions and/or images of people who have passed away.
