Her fellow ministers and advisers weighed in with the opinion that Aboriginal culture was flawed because we hadn't invented the wheel or done anything useful with the land. Some went so far as to say child abuse was one of our cultural traits.' (Introduction)

    'What if its too late? What if the damage is done? Our climate is changing, a shift that will be transformative.
