Inhaltsangabe: Marnie Kennedy, a member of the Kalkadoon people, died in 1985 shortly before the first edition of "Born a Half-Caste" was published. Here in this reprinted edition, Marnie's story lives on. Marnie's story begins with her birth in 1919 on the banks of Coppermine Creek in western Queensland. It tells of her journey to Palm Island where she grew up 'under the Act' which dominated the lives of Aboriginal people in that State. The book includes lively descriptions of her hard working life on cattle stations throughout the north and the people she encountered there. Mamie Kennedy dedicated this book to future generations of her family and her people. She wrote her story in the hope that white people would come to know and understand the plight of her people by reading of her own life as a 'half-caste'.
