Robert Lowe's affection and regard for "The Mish", a property in Victoria's southwest, originally an Aboriginal mission, is warmly conveyed in this candid memoir. In the 1950s and 60s when Robert was growing up, "The Mish'"was a vital community made up of the Aboriginal descendants of what had been founded in 1865 as Framlingham Aboriginal Mission Station. His boyhood was a secure and unfettered time spent with siblings and cousins enjoying the adventures and experiences of hunting, fishing and eel trapping. Teachings in the traditional ways of the first inhabitants instilled in him a connection to the land and a spirituality he would, in turn, pass on to following generations. In later years, The Mish offers rare and unguarded insight into an Aboriginal life experience outside the familiar world of traditional home and kin.
