Get Reading: Riding the Black Cockatoo

Riding the Black Cockatoo by John Danalis

On the mantelpiece of John Danalis's childhood home sat an Aboriginal skull. Yet only as an adult did Danalis ask where it came from. Riding the Black Cockatoo is the fascinating story of how that skull of an Aboriginal man, found on the banks of the Murray River over 40 years ago, came to be returned to his Wamba Wamba descendants. Part history, part detective story, it's a book for young and old, exploring the transformative and healing power of true reconciliation.
