This story begins with a strange person walking out of the Australian wilderness, or bush, into an English settlement in the early 1860’s. The visitor is suspicious in settlers’ eyes. Because he was raised by Aboriginals, he is viewed as untrustworthy. The settler’s idea of bringing civilization is totally wrong, it is what we call colonization. The writer doesn’t support the idea by showing examples of when certain characters don’t try to understand the land. Instead the bring animals from their homeland. Also the settlers are not the locals, it’s the Aboriginals land. The moral of the book is that colonization is wrong. To summarize my thoughts, I think that the book was a little harder to read than the previous texts. I appreciate the choice because it helped me focus myself in the book when I was reading through.
