Description - The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith by Thomas Keneally

The classic by Booker Prize-winner Thomas Keneally

When Jimmie Blacksmith marries a white woman, the backlash from both Jimmie's tribe and white society initiates a series of dramatic events. As Jimmie tries to survive between two cultures, tensions reach a head when the Newbys, Jimmie's white employers, try to break up his marriage. the Newby women are murdered and Jimmie flees, pursued by police and vigilantes. the hunt intensifies as further murders are committed, and concludes with tragic results. thomas Keneally's fictionalised account of the 1900 killing spree of half-Aboriginal Jimmy Governor is a powerful story of a black man's revenge against an unjust and intolerant society.
