The contributors speak frankly about their lives, from pre World War II years to the present day. From joy of 'mixed-race' dances at the Sunshine Club, midnight mango raids, and the smell of satay outside Darwin's Star Theatre, to the anguish of 'half-caste' children separated from their families, this collection evokes a contrasting picture of racial harmony and prejudice. Ultimately it is a record of the strength and diversity and a tribute to the Indigenous families who contributed greatly to the life of the Northern Territory and continue to do so...'
