of New South Wales. Following learning to read on the way from England his father he settlers with his father William to run a butcher’s shop.
Robert son of convict William is found guilty by association with his father William who is falsely convicted of theft of cattle. His passage friend,
Alexander, has his capital punishment commuted to 8 years hard labor at Morten Bay.
His subsequent escapes and adventures with the Dhungatti and their north coast neighbours is educational and charming. I would never have left them
if I’d have married the beautiful Wayam.
This is a major historical novel writing from the Aboriginal and human perspectives. I shows how little the first people’s culture was
understood and valued by the English settlers. The inherit compassion for people of the Aborigines is contrasted against the rigid
imposition of the English class system that allowed justice for the moneyed class only. The writing is clear, engaging, informative and entertaining.
This book must be added to the reading list to all fair minded Australians and to the libraries of all our high schools.
I unwaveringly recommend FRAMED for its character development of a young boy through middle age who learned to survive on his own under extremely adverse conditions and use his survival skills to eventually live by. FRAMED provides a historical understanding of the people who populated the growing Australian country at the turn of the 19th century.
We follow the character of Richard Craig as he grows into adulthood. His is a gripping story of adventure and hardship. His empathy for indigenous Australian culture and language will ultimately help him to forge a new life. M. E. Skeel writes with authenticity as she describes in fascinating detail the homeland of the Gumbaynggirr people. Through her own personal experience., we are given an absorbing snapshot of their kinship with the land.
