In Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence Pilkington recalls with a searing irony one of the more farcical projects of land management in the newly federated states of Australia. In 1907 a fence 1,834 kms in length was built from the Great Southern Ocean to the coast of the top end for the purpose of preventing rabbits invading Western Australia from the eastern states. Of course it did nothing of the sort. In fact, in a kind of carnivalesque humour, Pilkington contends that there were more rabbits on the Western Australian side of the fence than on the South Australian side. In Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence, however, the fence, for three young girls, is 'a symbol of love, home and security' those most coveted and most mourned entitlements for generations of stolen people. Molly, the oldest of the three and the leader of the group, succeeded in delivering the three to their homelands as she was equipped with a range of essential survival skills, those learned from her white father, an inspector on the fence, and those learned from her step-father, 'a former nomad from the desert' and an 'expert' in bushcraft

Pilkington's mother Molly, who as a young girl led her two sisters on an extraordinary 1,600 kilometre walk home. Under Western Australia's invidious removal policy of the 1930s, the girls were taken from their Aboriginal families at Jigalong on the edge of the Little Sandy Desert, and transported halfway across the state to the Native Settlement at Moore River, north of Perth. Here Aboriginal children were instructed in the ways of white society and forbidden to speak their native tongue. When the girls escaped they set off for Jigalong - barefoot, with no previsions and on the run from Native Police, desperate to return to the world they knew

Australien, 1931. Konsequent verfolgt der Chief Protector of Aborigines die australische Rassenpolitik. Ziel ist, alle Mischlingskinder in staatlichen Heimen zu Englisch sprechenden Hausangestellten und Farmarbeitern umzuerziehen. Opfer dieser Politik werden auch Molly, ihre jüngere Schwester Daisy und ihre Cousine Gracie. Gewaltsam werden sie von ihren Müttern getrennt und in das weit entfernte Camp Moore River verschleppt. Molly beschliesst mit Daisy und Gracie aus dem Camp zu fliehen. 1.500 Meilen trennen sie von ihrem Zuhause. Die einzige Orientierung, die die Mädchen in der endlosen Weite Australiens haben, ist ein Zaun, der als Schutz vor Kaninchenplagen den gesamten Kontinent durchläuft - der "Rabbit-Proof Fence". Verfolgt von der Polizei und dem erbarmungslosen Spurensucher Moodoo machen sich Molly, Daisy und Gracie auf den weiten Weg nach Jigalong. (Quelle: Umschlag)
