    Under the skin

    Written in a spare and elliptical style with hints of Tim Winton, this beautifully told story of the meeting of cultures in the Albany region of Western Australia in the early 19 century brings pathos and deep meaning to the lives of the people at the interface. The clash of attitudes towards country is sensitively delineated throughout the story. Do read this book.

    Learning about what happened

    Be patient with beautiful descriptions of beach, forest, waterhole. They will paint pictures of what used to be. This book informs us about the subtleties of power, gently moving in, taking advantage of a culture of sharing and ecological rules of survival. The central character is an artist who infiltrates his societies with his intelligence, all the time reflecting what he learns. We should always listen to our artists and reflect on how they paint us.

    The Deadman Dance

    An interesting portrayal of Australian History through the experiences of the West Australian indigenous people. It is a bit drawn out but well worth a read.
