AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"Kes is facing the unthinkable. As drought and a bushfire threaten their lives and their homes and wipe out their cattle, her family will have to abandon the mountain property of her great grandparents. Kes is torn by her search for her own identity and that of her Aboriginal grandmother. If her gentle father was not a stolen child but simply unwanted, will she keep this knowledge to herself? And then there is an incredible discovery which only makes her more confused - or will it be her salvation?" (Source: back cover)
