Book Description

The original text that inspired the 2002 film.

The film Rabbit-Proof Fence is based on this true account of Doris Pilkington's mother Molly, who as a young girl led her two sisters on an extraordinary 1,600 kilometre walk home.

Under Western Australia's invidious removal policy of the 1930s, the girls were taken from their Aboriginal families at Jigalong on the edge of the Little Sandy Desert, and transported halfway across the state to the Native Settlement at Moore River, north of Perth. Here Aboriginal children were instructed in the ways of white society and forbidden to speak their native tongue.

When the girls escaped they set off for Jigalong - barefoot, with no previsions and on the run from Native Police - desperate to return to the world they knew.

Total Running Time: 4 hours, 11 Minutes. 4 CDs.
