When I started reading the book, it was impossible to stop. I thought to myself that this was the greatest escape of all time.
Before reading the book, I never thought that could ever do such things to children, even if they were "Half-caste"!
In Rabbit-Proof Fence, award-wining author Doris Pilkington traces the story of her mother, Molly, one of three young girls uprooted from their community in Southwestern Australia and taken to the Moore River Native Settlement. There, Molly and her relatives Gracie and Daisy were forbidden to speak their native language, forced to abandon their heritage, and taught to be culturally white. After regular stays in solitary confinement, the three girls planned and executed a daring escape from the grim camp.
This book can be read by everyone, but in my opinion, I would indicate to people over 16/18 years because it has a great historical environment that need to be understood! The book is relatively small. It has about 160 pages. But for those who do not like reading, there is also the movie but escapes the details of the book as usual.
