He emerged from the cave of bats with the name given to him by his people. He was Jandamarra - a man of power who could appear and disappear like a ghost. Set in the Kimberley region in rth-west Australia, this is the story of a young warrior born to lead. To the settlers, he was an outlaw to be hunted. To the Bunuba, he was a courageous defender of his country. Mark Greenwood's text and Terry Denton's watercolour illustrations bring to life this story of conflict and divided loyalties - giving a unique insight into an extraordinary man and a tragic but important part of Australia's frontier history.
Mark Greenwood is the author of The Legend of Moondyne Joe, The Legend of Lasseter's Reef, Magic Boomerang, Outback Adventure and Our Big Island. His most recent book is Simpson and His Donkey, illustrated by Frane Lessac. Terry Denton has illustrated more than 100 books, twenty of which he has also written.
