John Jagamarra grew up at the Pearl Bay Mission for Aboriginal children in the far north-west. It was beautiful there, but it wasn't home. This is a tale for everyone about the pain of separation, and the strength of the human spirit.
The Burnt Stick
This book is very moving yet informs the reader of the atrocities that the indigenous people of Australia suffered. We read this as a class novel we hope that John found his family again.
