    Book 'The Burnt Stick'
    Product Code: 26021
    Price $24.09 $21.90
    The Burnt Stick is the story of a young Australian aboriginal boy, John Jagamarra, who was taken from his mother by the Welfare Department, and sent to the Fathers at the Pearl Bay Mission. Nobody asked the mothers .. the Welfare believed they would soon get over their loss. And nobody asked the children - they would soon forget. Yet John Jagamarra did not forget. He was nearly five when the Big Man from Welfare came looking for him - and you can remember many things when you are almost five years old. All through his childhood John remembered the life of the camp at Dryborough Station and the good trick his mother, Liyan, played with a stick burnt in the fire when the Big Man came looking for John. She rubbed the black charcoal into his skin to make John seem darker than he really was – too dark to be taken away. Twice she got away with it. But the third time... Originally published in 1994, this moving book is more relevant now than ever. Aimed for ages approx 7 to 12 years old. Learn More

    Price $38.39 $34.90
    Once there were two little girls who were best friends. They did everything together. As they got older they weren't allowed to do the same things anymore because they looked different and because of the law. Many Australians are not aware that we too had segregation laws in our recent history. This book tells the true story of the author’s sister and her best friend. They were segregated in class, at the local pool, and the cinema, because of the law. 'Say Yes' is a story about how the events surrounding the historic 1967 referendum played out in the everyday lives of two young girls and how the Australian people said YES.
