Graham Wilson is a prolific writer of fiction with ten novels published both as e-books and print. This latest, Arnhem’s Kaleidsocope Chldren is a memoir of Graham’s life, growing up as the child of missionary parents in the 1950s in the Northern Territory and specifically at Oenpelli.

The book takes us to many places both in time, space and philosophically. The missionary work of his parents as people trying to do good and being friends with people who needed it is covered along with thoughts on the various incursions of white Australia into Aboriginal Australia. Graham writes beautifully in this highly personal work – his knowledge and love of the NT landscape shines through with descriptive passages of startling clarity and brilliance.

I highly commend it to readers with an interest in the social history of Australia and in the complex issues surrounding the Australian Aboriginal people.
