The Dreamers

$23.99

With humane irony the Western Australian poet, Jack Davis gives a painful insight into the process of colonisation and the transformation of his people.

The Dreamers is the story of a country-town family and old Uncle Worru, who in his dying days, recedes from urban hopelessness to the life and language of the Nyoongah spirit which in him has survived 'civilisation'.
