Soaring With Cockatoos

Imagine you were an Australian Aborigine living in the 19th century on territory occupied by your tribe for perhaps millennia. Suddenly people of a totally different culture appear and aim to expel you, kill you, or “tame” you and take over your land. What would you have done? Could you do anything but become an “outlaw” according to the invaders?

Read about the decisions made by a charismatic young man named Yungaburra. It’s in the novel Soaring With Cockatoos.
