The exile of the Indigenous people of Hope Valley during World War II is a shameful yet seldom-told chapter in Australia’s history. Roy McIvor’s inspirational outlook and generous spirit show how he and his people triumphed over the hardship to which they were subjected, eventually returning home to re-build their community, now known as Hope Vale. Today, Roy McIvor is recognised as one of Cape York’s leading artists. Features full-colour reproductions.
