Mitji lived with the Aboriginal tribe for as long as she could
remember, but with her white skin, thin nose, and red hair, she
does not look like the rest of the tribe. As she nears womanhood,
her oddness has made her an outcast and she must leave her people.
She goes on a walkabout, in search of the walypalya, the tribe with
red hair and white skin like her own, who had come from the great
waters--perhaps they would receive her kindly and let her stay with
them. On her wanderings she comes upon a white man, lying half-dead
in the blazing heat, and nurses him back to health. Together they
made their way to his home. There, Mitji becomes known as Meg and
comes to understand that she was herself one of the walypalya.
There are new dangers amongst this tribe and Meg must confront the
terrors of a long sea voyage before she can find happiness on the
other side of the world. Only the knowledge gained from her
Aboriginal tribe can guarantee her survival and that of her
