Title: Kick the Tin.
Description: North Melbourne Spinifex Press, 2002. 2nd ed. Paperback trade, very good condition, few black & white text-photos, minor edgewear, top spine lightly rubbed. 140 pp. A compelling and witty story of a courageous journey into the soul of the individual to find meaning and substance after the loss of everything the rest of us take for granted. The author was taken from hospital after her mother died and placed in the Colebrook Home (Adelaide), where she remained for the next 14 years. The legacy of being a member of the Stolen Generations continued for Doris as she was placed in white homes as a virtual slave, struggled through relationships and suffered with bipolar depression. 'Kick the Tin' was a game she played in the Colebrook Home. ISBN: 1875559957.
