That Deadman Dance
Bargain Book Copy
Acclaimed Australian writer Kim Scott draws on his Aboriginal heritage in a sweeping novel that reimagines the story of colonizer and colonized with lyrical power and hopeful vision. Throughout Bobby Wabalanginy’s young life, the ships have been bringing European settlers to the south coast of Western Australia, where Bobby’s people, the Noongar, have always lived. Bobby has been quick to assist the newcomers and easy to please, helping them till the land and hunt the whales, but not everyone is so happy with the progress of the white colonists, and eventually, things begin to change. Livestock disappears, crops are destroyed, the Europeans assert their power, and Bobby is drawn into a series of events that will change his world forever.
