  • Review

    I really liked the book, the description of both the landscape and characters made it easy to imagine what it was like to have lived there. Such a hard life and no understanding between the natives and settlers. Really sets out clearly what was taken from the aboriginals who lived there with such ignorance and misplaced right of entitlement by the whites.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Salt Creek

    Classic Australian settlers tale told from an independent woman's perspective. I loved the attention to the details of farming with all the difficulties of trying to make a living from such poor land.

  • A great read.

    A great read which got better as it went. Salt Creek is an interesting expose of a little known part of Australia and an important comment on white civilisation intersecting with the aboriginal inhabitants. I especially enjoyed the vivid character description especially through subtle depiction of gestures and expression. I'm sorry to say goodbye to this one.

  • Early Australians

    About the European colonists in Australia in the seventeenth century; this novel shows a fair treatment of people and situations in that period. It is also a well written treatment of family relationships from that period in an isolated environment.

  • Great story

    A family dragged off to a remote part of South Australia in the 1800s by the father who is obssessed with making a success of farming. In the process, the lives of the indigenous family are impacted as a result of the destruction of their land. Interesting comparison between the white settlers and the indigenous people.

    Thanks for your feedback!
