Characters: Interesting and relatable
Margaret Way paints a picture with words of the land, homestead, etc etc. You can actual see it, it is so vividly described.
The only thing that jars is the rather formal use of language - between all the characters. It comes across as very pretentious (more on the part of the author). The copyright says 2012 - the conversational tone seems to be from at least two to three decades back. It sort of takes away from the story.
The future of the Aboriginals in Australia is fastly becoming a major world social educational cultural and poltical problem. More focus on the interaction between the white Australian and the Aboriginal would make future books verey exciting. However I must concur that M/S Ways's pictures and passions in the outback are real and vivid. Though the Auzzies are mainly of British stock, they have developed in quite a unique way, both the best and the not so enviable traits of their ancestors,
