Through Silent Country


A Western Australian writer with a background in both literature and architecture, Dowley tells the story of 18 Wongutha people who in the 1920s were exiled by a whim of government from their country practically on the edge of the Great Victoria Desert and sent a thousand kilometers away near Perth. There they were imprisoned but escaped and decided to walk home. After her chronicle of events, she lets people tell their own tale, from written and spoken accounts.
