Summary

Lalor gives a sometimes angry but more often funny account of what it was like to be a part-Aboriginal man in outback Australia. He grew up with colour prejudice among his own relatives, was put in a boys' home and ran away, and did various kinds of work. He recorded on tape these detailed recollections of his extraordinary life.
