About this item
This book, written by Doris Pilkington Garimara and published by University of Queensland Press in 2002 follows on from her previous nove, 'Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence'. Under the Wintamarra tree tells about Doris's life in Perth to train as a nurse's aide, but where the racist culture of an institutional upbringing leaves an indelible mistrust of her own people. This is the obstacle she has to overcome when as a wife and mother she makes the courages but difficult choice to find her mother and father, and to begin the journey to reclaim her Mardu heritage. The book is very good condition with no marks or highlights topages. The paperback cover is a little faded but otherwise very good. A great read for those interested in Australian culture.
