Narrated very well. Could not finish book.
As a manager of a West Australian cattle station I am disgusted at how we are portrayed in this book. I live and work with Indigenous people and have always been fascinated with their culture. I have also enjoyed many of this author's other novels.
It doesn't matter if you're white, black, yellow or rainbow. You need to advise someone if you're entering a cattle station. It is for your safety as well as ours and our cattle. Gates get left open so our cattle get cruelly killed on the roads. Rubbish is left lying around (not just by white fellas as the book notes) and our cattle eat it and get sick and die. Not to mention the fact that if different people trespass to go hunting and someone gets shot and killed. Legally that murder is on my back.
Do we need to be better at Indigenous Relations in Australia? Absolutely! But demonising Pastoralists to easily influenced suburbanites is so wrong. Pastoralists have done more for Indigenous Australians at a grass roots level than any other group of people in Australia.
