Set in outback Western Australia, Malloonkai tells the story of the early relationship between the two cultures as they battle together to win a living from the land by breeding cattle. It is nevertheless a very aboriginal tale, with much use made of aboriginal terms throughout, since the protagonist is a full-blood Australian aborigine. It is a remarkable book in every way, and one that should be on reading lists in high schools and universities in Australia and elsewhere. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
