Publisher's Summary

Set in a remote area of Western Australia, The Fringe Dwellers is the story of two part-Aboriginal sisters, Noonah and Trilby, who leave the mission they call home to return to their family's camp on the fringe of white society. Noonah is pragmatic and accepts her position, only wanting to raise money for the family. But Trilby refuses to believe that her current position will define the rest of her life.

First published in 1961, The Fringe Dwellers is a landmark novel in Australian literature. It was adapted into an internationally acclaimed (and award-winning) film in 1986 by Bruce Beresford.
