The vintage through Booker Prize-winner Thomas Keneally When Jimmie Blacksmith marries a white girl, the backlash from each Jimmie’s tribe and white society initiates a chain of dramatic occasions. As Jimmie tries to live to tell the tale between two cultures, tensions achieve a head when the Newbys, Jimmie’s white employers, attempt to get a divorce his marriage. the Newby ladies are murdered and Jimmie flees, pursued through police and vigilantes. the search intensifies as additional murders are dedicated, and concludes with tragic effects. thomas Keneally’s fictionalised account of the 1900 killing spree of half-Aboriginal Jimmy Governor is a formidable tale of a black guy’s revenge in opposition to an unjust and illiberal society.
