Description - That Deadman Dance by Kim Scott

Bobby Wabalanginy never learned fear, not until he was pretty well a grown man. Sure, he grew up doing the Dead Man Dance, but with him it was a dance of life, a lively dance for people to do together... Told through the eyes of black and white, young and old, this is a story about a 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.It is a story for our times.This special edition celebrates 40 years of Picador with one of Australia's finest literary reads. With 16 pages of extra content, including Reading Group notes, an interview and awards list, this special edition will make a valuable contribution to your bookshelf.
