About the Book

‘Written in hotel rooms while working as a professional actor in various indigenous film, television and theatre productions, Peter Docker’s Someone Else’s Country is a deeply sensitive and at times intensely visceral engagement with contemporary indigenous culture … it is also a powerful historical document, which has at its heart the struggle of a non-indigenous author trying to find an authentic position from which to discuss the indigenous culture …’ — Australian Book Review

‘An extraordinary achievement, as both literature and cultural analysis. Reading this is a privilege … rarely have I been so moved’ — Rolf De Heer, The Tracker, Ten Canoes

‘This book is written from the inside out. And that’s what it did to me — turned me inside out’ — Pete Postlethwaite OBE, Usual Suspects, In The Name Of The Father, Liyarn Nyarn

On a remote cattle station a small boy begins a profound journey into an Australia few whitefellas know …

This is a journey into another place—a genuine meeting ground for Black and White Australia, a place built on deep personal engagement and understanding.

A fearless, funny and profoundly moving Australian story.
