Description

At 20, John Bradley was sent to teach Aboriginal children in a school at remote Borroloola, on the Gulf of Carpentaria. But it is the teacher who is educated by the Yanyuwa elders and their families. Over three decades he learns their language and their country, becoming intimately drawn into other ways of being, both practical and spiritual.
