- This is the story of an Aboriginal youth, a 'bodgie' of the early sixties, who grows up on the ragged outskirts of a country town, falls into petty crime, goes to gaol, and comes out to do battle once more with society that put him there.
- Its publication in 1965 marked a unique literary event, for this was the first novel by any Aboriginal writer to be published in Australia.
- As well, it is a remarkable piece of literature in its own right, expressing the dilemmas and conflicts of the young Aborigine in modern Australian society with memorable insight and stylishness.
