Last Truck Out

Betty Lockyer
From the Beagle Bay Mission to the pearling town of Broome after World War II, Betty Lockyer’s childhood was influenced by culture, religion and strict government policy. Having an Aboriginal mother and an Asian father, she felt both the heart-wrenching effects of family forcibly removed from country and the protective authority of the Catholic nuns and brothers. Lockyer captures the resilience of children to live in the moment as she recalls the heady days of her childhood growing up among the mangroves and gambling houses.
