True Country

$27.99

By Kim Scott

Billy, a young school teacher, arrives in Karnama, a remote settlement in Australia’s far north, in search of his own history, his Aboriginality, and his future. Gradually the outsider is drawn in, and finds himself engaging deeply, irrevocably, not only with the moments of desolation and despair, but also with the great heart and spirit of the people. Finally the exile enters the true country.
