An amazing afternoon watching Pastures of the Blue Crane on its 50th. anniversary The descriptions Brinsmead brought to life on the pages are evocative of living in those times and conjour up intense feelings and images of places that remain with us today. How thrilling to have an introduction by director Tom Jeffrey and to have cinematographer John Seale, continuity girl Sue Milliken and the legendary David Stratton also present. The ABC production, filmed on location in the Tweed Valley and coast, tackling tough themes of racial identity, family secrets and redemption, stands up incredibly well.

This is the story of an illegitimate son and the mother who decided to keep him. It is the story, too, of a foster mother who loved children and of her extended family

This is the story of an illegitimate son and the mother who decided to keep him. It is the story, too, of a foster mother who loved children and of her extended family. This extraordinary autobiography recreates the atmosphere of a Sydney suburb around World War I, and subtly explores the changing times. A delightful book about a young snobby girl who has to grow up when her father dies and she finds a grandfather she never knew. She also has to learn a few things about herself in the process. The true delight for me was the backdrop of he emerging Gold Coast region of australia before it became a tourist strip. Beautifully developed characters

Although the books undercurrents of mixed race shame and racial secrecy had caused the novel to fall from favour, it is now considered worthy of study in Secondary schools as a fascinating glimpse of a little-known episode in Australia's history, when Pacific Islanders were shipped in to work on plantations in NSW and Queensland. Pastures of the Blue Crane. Written by. Eleanor Witcombe. The Min-Min by Mavis Thorpe Clark (1967).

The book faces up to the problem of personal acceptance of an interracial community. The ramifications of the problem are presented through the conversations of the teenagers (also Ryl's grandfather and his cronies) which are a convincing mixture of banter and conscientious probing. The context is distinctively Australian; nevertheless the basics of the conflict are universal. The well described scenery is an extra plus for this story which girls will enjoy reading and perhaps find thought-provoking. Better than most teenage friction fiction.
