Oz Reading Matters
Pilawuk - When I Was Young
Published in 1996 this is one of a series of 3 books of oral histories.
Included in the Premier's Reading Challenge, this is the story of a young girl who was removed from her aboriginal family in the Daly River area.
Considering it is rated for grades 5 and 6 this book is written and presented in a very simple style which might lose the message in the haste with which it can be read.
Pilawuk was placed with non-aboriginal families after living in a mission but has since been able to trace her family.
