99 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,118 libraries worldwide
In this epic tale, Norman Shillingsworth, the product of a white father and a black mother, belatedly learns of his Aboriginal heritage and what that means in the violent world of Australia's untamed north during the 1930s. Herbert proposes a hopeful rainbow coloured future for Australia, but what the story may actually illustrate is ongoing despair

Ranging over a period of some six years, the story is set during the late 1930s and early 1940s; but it is not so much a tale of this period as Herbert's analysis and indictment of the steps by which we came to the Australia of today
