North Western Australia.
The Kimberley

When Sister Kathleen Murphy decided to visit the old Aboriginal woman, Anna Cook in the Derby District Hospital to ask for her help with a project for her students about life on the vast cattle station Cockatoo Creek she had no real idea what to expect. But, what the Sister learns surprises and shocks her. What she hears is a tale of murder and rape by white men who lived with apparent impunity of the laws of that time. A heart-wrenching story of true love despite the demeaning racial hatred of those days, told in a land of ruthless white men, skilled black trackers and a mysterious Kurdaitcha man that some say can travel the land as a great eagle, as a Spirit Bird.
A story as colourful as any from the pages of the American West
