Angus & Robertson, Sydney - first edition, 1989. hardcover, 9 1/2" x 6 1/4", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Khaki-green cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, khaki endpapers, frontis portrait (photo of author, 1987), map of S-W Pacific, 3 other maps, 27 b&w photographs, bibliography, index. This book is a thought-provoking commentary on the injustices, exploitation and paternalism of an ill-documented and little understood period of Australia's history - the kidnapping of South Sea Kanaka labourers for work in North Queensland cane fields & their struggles for survival in the face of deportation. The author was raised in Australia in the Island tradition & taught the ancient customs & taboos of his forefathers. This is the story of his search for his roots. Powerful, moving.
