This book is so bad it doesn't rate 1 star.Reviewed in the United States on 30 November 2013
Peter Docker should stick to acting or spend some time learning how to write but basically he has nothing to say of any consequence. He is a complete imposter choosing to represent an indigenous perspective. He certainly didn't do them any favours.
ConfrontingReviewed in the United States on 5 August 2013
Makes you think about colonialism from a perpetrator's perspective. However, as always with history, making judgements is questionable from where we sit. Sad & confronting story.
