True story of three little girls, part of the “stolen generations” kidnapped from their families and brought Aboriginal residential schools.

 

This is the true story of three little girls, called “half-caste” by the Australian government, part of the “stolen generations” kidnapped from their families and communities and brought to the Moore River Native Settlement, one of the Aboriginal residential schools whose mission was to train them as domestic workers and assimilate them into Australian society. Young Molly Craig, leading her little sister, Daisy, and cousin, Gracie, in a daring escape, attempt to elude the authorities and walk the dangerous 1,500 miles along the rabbit-proof fence that will lead them home. Set down by Molly's daughter, this story is an affirmation of strength and determination in the face of racism and colonialism.

Also available, DVD drama based on this book.
