When Gracie, Daisy and Molly are taken from their mother and sent away to the Moore River Settlement, thousands of miles from their home country, they decide to escape. But when the only way home is along a rabbit-proof fence, and you re being chased by the police, escaping is just the start of your adventure.This younger reader's version of Doris Pilkington's amazing best-selling true story of courage and love will grab readers of all ages, and take them on a journey through a country as beautiful as it is harsh. A journey home.

It is a good book for little kids as this book teaches how life for Aboriginal people was like in those days.

It's a good book for young readers as it has very simple text but the morals and concepts of the tale are very good. A really basic read. It is a simplified version of 'Over the Rabbit Proof Fence' and a tale of great bravery and courage of three young aboriginal girls and their trip across Western Australia to find their way 'Home to Mother'.
