Star of the South

Gordon d'Venables

A young Indigenous Australian boy, Mokiny, from a background based on natural, spiritual values and ways of behaviour, and Bruce, a white Australian boy, whose father does little to encourage his son to walk the right path, become great friends. As they grow older, Bruce veers away from his friend's moral culture and innate knowledge of the bush and becomes a callous criminal. As Bruce (now a hardened, racist thug) sinks yet deeper into crime, he commits an unthinkable act. How will the Indigenous community of Cottam Mills deal with their grief and loss?
