Grog War

Alexis Wright

New Edition Miles Franklin award-winning author Alexis Wright describes how the remote town of Tennant Creek dealt with the invasion of grog on their traditional lands. Commissioned by the Julalikari Council, Wright describes the shocking effects of alcohol abuse and racism in this vivid portrayal of how Aboriginal Elders and community advisors fought to put alcohol restrictions in place. Their courage and tenacity is an inspiration for other towns in northern Australia who battle against the tide of alcohol abuse and resistance from licencees and the broader community.
