An unbelievable, wonderful tale of hardship and endurance! And to think this is a true story! It makes you mad at the Australian government of that time!!!

I didn't know there was a book, but I saw the movie and loved it, therefore I decided on fishing out this book from the Convention's Pool and bring it with me. Let's see how it goes...

Most of the times I watch a film and think that the book was so much better, even if, as in this case, I happen to see the film first. Therefore, it comes as quite a surprise to say that on this occasion, Kenneth Branagh has won over Doris Pilkington by a long, log shot. The story as portrayed in the film is quite strong, both heart-breaking and inspirational. However the novel strangely lacks such resonance. Pilkington writes in a very simple style, which while highlighting the youth and naivity of her three heroines, diminishes the story's emotional pull. At times it feels like the author is just writing a leaflet on the Stolen Generations rather than a death-defying journey through the outback. The language used does not reflect in any way the pain, anguish and despair which those girls must have felt time and time again on such an excruciating adventure, neither does justice to the cause of the removal of aboriginal children from their families.
Anyway, I liked reading it and remembering a great movie!
