              The Cherry Picker's Daughter

              This second edition of The Cherry Picker's Daughter is an exquisite portrait of growing up Aboriginal on the fringes of outback towns in NSW in the mid-twentieth century. Its an important book for school libraries and classrooms, with profound insights into the extraordinary stre...ngth, resilience and ingenuity of Aboriginal families to overcome extreme poverty, persecution, racism and cultural genocide. The strength of family ties in Aboriginal communities is clearly evident when three-month-old Kerry and her brother lost both parents. Her father, Kevin Gilbert - later to become a famous activist and artist - killed their mother and was jailed for many years. Her father's sister, whom she always called 'Mummy', raised Kerry and her brother, along with her own children and others within the extended family. The book is a tribute to this truly remarkable woman, who not only loved them selflessly and worked tirelessly to support them, but also managed to keep them from being taken/'stolen' by the 'Welfare'. Told in the child's voice and in the vernacular of her Mob, activist, artist, poet and author, Aunty Kerry, tells her story of love and loss, of dispossession and repeated dislocation growing up in corrugated tin huts, tents and run-down train carriages, of helping her family earn 'an honest living' through fruit picking, and the impact of life as an Aboriginal state ward living under the terror of Protection Laws. 'A wonderful yarn by an Aboriginal Elder about a bygone way of life.' - Melissa Lucashenko, author of Miles Franklin Award-winning Too Much Lip 'Australia has waited too long to read this book of courage and truth. It heralds a timely change in our thinking of Aboriginal activism.' - Jeanine Leane, Wiradjuri writer and academic 'Thank you, Kerry, for sharing your story - so much pain and hurt, but such life-affirming strength and love, too.' - Kate Grenville, author

Then descriptions of gold discovery and mining for gold in Victoria during the 1860's. One line of the large Aberdeen family is followed through to ...2020. The wild but cunning William Aberdeen personality stays in the genes, and prosperity comes from tertiary education. Long may we continue.

              First Sailing of the S.S. Smith Thompson
                

              First Sailing of the S.S. Smith Thompson (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The S.S. Smith Thompson was a World War II armed cargo ship built on an emergency basis by the U.S. War Shipping Administration. The Smith Thompson was one of those ordinary Liberty ships that did her job during extraordinary times. This story chronicles one man's version of a ty...pical voyage aboard a World War II Liberty ship. The man at the center of the story is Albert F. Miller, or Al as he was called by his friends and family. The story is told by Al's grandson, Steve Miller and is intended to provide enjoyment and some nostalgia for the reader, not to be a textbook or reference manual. The public then and now is ignorant about the Merchant Marine, in that merchant seamen in World War II suffered more deaths per capita than any branch of the U.S. military. In fact, the War Shipping Administration deliberately refused to reveal the casualty figures during the war in order to avoid creating a shortage of volunteers. My hope is that the reader will come to understand what it was like to serve aboard an armed merchant vessel, as it was for the vast majority of those that served. They served quietly, without distinction, and felt no particular grandeur; they thought they were just doing their job. Contents: Foreword Introduction 1: Meet Albert F. Miller 2: Al Gets His Opportunity 3: The Smith Thompson Readies for Sea 4: Time to Say Goodbye 5: Issues and Comments to Consider as the Ship Puts to Sea 6: The Smith Thompson's First Day at Sea 7: The Smith Thompson Settles in for a Long Voyage 8: The Crew Gets to Know Each Other 9: Working Together as a Crew 10: Scuttlebutt Says the Ship Will Port in New Zealand 11: Continuing the Westward Journey 12: The Smith Thompson Moves Into the Indian Ocean 13: Arrival at Bombay, India 14: Time to Depart from the Long Stay in Bombay 15: Arrival in Madras 16: The Doldrums of Calcutta 17: The Beginning of the Homeward-Bound Voyage 18: Putting India in the Rearview Mirror 19: The S.S.
