An Intruder's Guide to East Arnhem Land
Andrew McMillan's AN INTRUDER'S GUIDE TO EAST ARNHEM LAND is part history, part journalism, part literature, part love story with a people and a place. The writing is both edgy and contemporary; a narrative of history in remote Australia where the echoes of the past continue to resonate with us today. Passionate, sensitive, witty and surprising, this book will give you a sense of Australia and national identity you have never known before. Arnhem Land: where the first (or even second or third) language is not English and you need to ask permission before travelling across country; where you have to demonstrate respect and observation of the laws of the land and its peoples but none of it is written down. After a lifetime of growing up in Australia it feels eerily like foreign travel - but without ever leaving the country. Andrew McMillan has spent decades visiting Arnhem Land, meeting, talking but mainly listening to people in a place that few outsiders visit. This book offers a unique insight.
