- Customer Reviews:
A book of courage is the only way to describe A Long Way from No Go. Tjanara shares her cultural strength and her love while sharing her life of horror, and that's not an easy thing to do.
From childhood to adulthood, her story is not a bed of roses. From being abused by members of the Catholic Church to the betrayal of the Australian government, her strength and determination showcases her cultural identity as an Aboriginal woman. Tjanara: a warrior whistleblower, a hero.
You can only admire Tjanara when you read her story. A long way to No Go, it's a must-read for all.
