    Description
    In the 1840s, a ship's boy cast ashore in northern Australia is taken in by Aborigines; 16 years later he steps out of the bush and inadvertently confronts the new white settlers with their unspoken terrors. This dramatisation of an edge-of-the-world encounter between the "civilised" and the "primitive" is outstanding; a deft and economical evocation of an entire nascent society, punctuated by moments of dazzling revelatory language and unforgettable images.

    Winner of the 1996 International Impac Dublin Literary Award, this is an enigmatic, subtle and beautifully written story that shimmers with the sights and sounds of the continent.
