Actress Jan Friedl's Australian accent perfectly seasons this family saga set in Australia's northern Queensland gold fields. It's a family saga with a difference, tracing Aboriginal dispossession from the 1860s to the 1980s. Friedl conveys the story's scene shifts and multitude of characters expertly. A quibble: Having Friedl read the family tree at the beginning of the tape only made this listener wish for a copy of the book--too many names! Family sagas require work from listeners, but a good story makes the effort worthwhile. A.C.S. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEPT 99]
