    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.

    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.

    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.

    Salt Creek

    Started slow but grew on me until i couldn't put it down. I could relate to all the characters and the scene was bought to life vividly. I lost myself in the moods of the novel...sooo good!
