Waiting for minimum critic reviews


An educational and heartwarming read, this story follows Mary, a young Aboriginal girl who lives on dusty cattle station. When Mary is shunned by other Indigenous girls for her fair skin, Old Ned, a community elder, comes to her rescue. Touching upon the themes of multiculturalism and prejudice, this narrative utilizes Old Ned’s voice to demonstrate that family, community, country, culture, and spirituality—in lieu of skin color—are at the heart of Aboriginal identity.
