Growing Up Torres Strait Islander In Australia

Growing Up Torres Strait Islander In Australia

Edited by Samantha Faulkner
Black Inc

This entertaining book has been compiled by Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal poet and author Samantha Faulkner.

The stories, from writers living on the islands and those on the mainland, talk about the history of the islands, their families and past injustices.

No insight into Torres Strait Islander history is complete without mentioning Eddie

Mabo, the man whose work ended the myth of terra nullius that was the basis for British colonisation of Australia,

and Ms Faulkner includes a chapter from his family.
