'Christobel Mattingley's very short story creates in a mere five pages a moving vignette of the frustration experienced by a young Aboriginal boy trying to find a job in a world which does not want him. So he joins the listless black crowd outside the pub watching hordes of tourists in their Range Rovers, Mercedes, and Volvos as they point their cameras at the nearby ancestral hunting grounds. It is a bitter tale.'
