Summary

"While their family was quite young, the Shedleys took into their home on the hill, in what is now an elite suburb of Perth, aboriginal teenagers from the country to attend high school. The story tells of the early lives of Meg and Don, of how they became involved, of the family relationships developed and the extraordinary outcome that now extends throughout Western Australia and filters across the whole nation."--Back cover.
