A First Nations Elder shares his extraordinary story of finding kindness in the midst of prejudice, and joy in living life to the full.


Welcome to my story.

I didn't learn a lot in school, not in the classroom, anyway. But I learned a lot from life.

'Always remember you're as good as anybody else,' Vince's mother, Kate, often told him. And he was, becoming a champion footballer and premiership-winning coach. But change was in the air, and Vince wanted to help make life better for his people too.

At every step, Vince found light in the darkness, the friendly face in the crowd, the small moments that make the world go round.

Welcome to the wonder of little things.

Praise for The Wonder of Little Things (Young Readers Edition)

'It's an Australian classic in the making, a plain-speaking account of hardship, courage and optimism told without self-pity or big noting ... Brimming with wisdom and optimism, this is a special opportunity to imbue the younger generation with the lessons and clarity of one of this country's most significant and influential Elders.' -- Better Reading

'His story is important. It is gently told, carrying much wisdom and gratitude too for the gifts life offered him. I loved this book, and hope that it has many, many readers. Recommended for readers from ten to one hundred.' -- Reading Time

'... a powerful, humbling and transformational read and one that I would very strongly suggest should be part of any Biography collection you are holding, or alternatively, First Nations collection.' -- Just So Stories
