Description - Benang: From the Heart: Fremantle Press Treasures by Kim Scott

Harley, a man of Nyoongar ancestry, finds himself at a difficult point in the history of his country, family and self. As the apparently successful outcome of his white grandfather's enthusiastic attempts to isolate and breed the 'first white man born', he wants to be a failure. But would such failure mean his Nyoongar ancestors could label him a success? And how can the attempted genocide represented by his family history be told?

Buy Benang: From the Heart: Fremantle Press Treasures by Kim Scott from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
