On a remote cattle station a small boy begins a profound journey into an Australia few whitefellas know …

This is a journey into another place – a genuine meeting ground for Black and White Australia, a place built on deep personal engagement and understanding.

A fearless, funny and profoundly moving Australian story.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘Written in hotel rooms while working as a professional actor in various indigenous film, television and theatre productions, Peter Docker’s Someone Else’s Country is a deeply sensitive and at times intensely visceral engagement with contemporary indigenous culture … it is also a powerful historical document which has at its heart the struggle of a non-indigenous author trying to find an authentic position from which to discuss the indigenous culture …’ Australian Book Review

‘An extraordinary achievement, as both literature and cultural analysis. Reading this is a privilege … rarely have I been so moved.’ Rolf De Heer, The Tracker, Ten Canoes

‘This book is written from the inside out. And that’s what it did to me – turned me inside out.’ Pete Postlethwaite OBE, Usual Suspects, In The Name Of The Father, Liyarn Ngarn
