Born in the late 1930s, the daughter of a white settler and an Alyawarra woman, Claire was four years old when she was taken to the Bungalow mission in Alice Springs. Much of her young life was spent on the newly formed Croker Island mission, and she recalls happy days in the care of compassionate missionaries. Sent south to escape the threat from Japanese fighters during World War II, Claire later returned to Croker Island and married. Inspired by others, Claire traced her Aboriginal family, however; she was never to meet her mother.

Review:

"It is a tragedy that Australia has so few first-person accounts of Aboriginal life in the 19th century, but Aboriginal Studies Press is attempting to redress the balance with fine contemporary accounts. This is a simple but beautifully told story of the life of Claire Henty-Gebert, the daughter of an Aboriginal woman and a vicious property owner."  —Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald
