That Deadman Dance

Thanks to the blogs of Sue Terry and Lisa Hill (see below) in which they recognized and hosted Indigenous Aussie Literature week I came up with a couple books by indigenous authors which they had reviewed and also were available on Kindle. I decided for no real good reason to read That Deadman Walk first. A winner! (And of the Miles Franklin Award no less.)
Talk about intriguing! It’s historical fiction from the era of first contact on the southwestern shores near today’s Albany between the years 1826 and 1844 or so. >>>MORE>>>
