Wherever I Go
In Wherever I Go, Myles Lalor gives a sometimes angry but more often funny account of what it was like to be a part-Aboriginal man in outback Australia. He grew up with colour prejudice among his own relatives, was put in a boys' home and ran away, did various kinds of bush work, extended his travels further and further from home as a stockman, truck driver and general rouseabout, settled down in Wilcannia and later did community work in Sydney. With anthropologist Jeremy Beckett, he recorded on tape these detailed recollections of his extraordinary life.
