Summary
As Australian settlers come into contact with the Noongar people of Western Australia, young Noongar man Bobby Wabalanginy befriends the new arrivals and helps them to establish their colony, until conflicts gradually begin to arise
Summary
Bobby Wabalanginy is a young Nyunga man, smart, resourceful, and eager to please. He befriends the European arrivals, joining them as they hunt whales, till the land, and establish their new colony. He is welcomed into a prosperous white family, and eventually finds himself falling in love with the daughter, Christine. But slowly -by design and by hazard-things begin to change. Not everyone is happy with how the colony is progressing. "Told through the eyes of black and white, young and old, this is a story about fledgling Western Australian community in the early 1800s known as the 'friendly frontier'. Poetic, warm-hearted and bold, it is a story which shows that first contact did not have to lead to war."--Back cover.
