Alone on the Soaks
The Life and Times of Alec KrugerBook - 2007
Snatched from his mother at age three, institutionalized for seven years, sent to work at age 10--Alec Kruger's harrowing childhood and life's journey are chronicled in this deeply moving autobiography. A child of mixed Aboriginal descent, he survived the loneliness and bullies of a stolen childhood to become a drover, army recruit, and plaintiff in the High Court. Tracing his search for a sense of belonging, this personal account ultimately reveals how, through the Central Australian Stolen Generations and Families Aboriginal Corporation, he was able to triumph in the struggle for recognition, reconciliation, and recompense.
