Lighting the Way: Reconciliation Stories captures the spirit of reconciliation. A collection of stories about individual and community acts of reconciliation, it is honest and engaging, and shows what reconciliation means and why so many Australians wish to achieve it. Each story is personal and immediate. Some trace families and relationships over generations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. This book reveals Australia for all that it is, has been and can be.
