Winner of the Small Press Network's Most Underrated Book Award 2018 Winner of the 2018 Territory Read Awards: Best Non-Fiction With honesty and unexpected graciousness, Byrne tells an Aboriginal history of Australia's north-west.

The killing times were barely over in the Kimberley. What I knew, even as a small boy, was that no-one argued with a whitefella. People talked in whispers. I was still so small. This is the story of the early years of my life. The story of a boy who was taken away from his mother and his family forever when he was just six years old. He had no say in it. His family had no say in it.

'This is a very strong story of survival. A tragic reminder of the harshness and unfairness of the mission era but also the toughness and determination of our people.' - Bruce Pascoe '...a tragic account of life as one among the Stolen Generation...an offering that feels like a gift to readers. A gift that will captivate and move you.' - Kate Rendell, Off the Leash 'This is a memoir of finding things, not just of losing them. I hope it finds a place in the reading of all Australians who are growing up.' - Tim Rowse, April Springs News
