Book Bingo - Round 6: Themes of Culture #BookBingo2020

Red Dirt Country by Fleur McDonald

This week I have chosen the category 'Themes of Culture.'

The book I have chosen for this category is: Red Dirt Country.

Red Dirt Country is set in the Australian outback and revolves around cattle stealing on a few cattle stations. Dave Burrows becomes involved when the stock squad is called in to investigate.
Fleur McDonald includes themes of culture through the station run by an aboriginal tribe. There is some conflict between the young station manager and the elders as the younger generation want to do things differently than their older relatives. The elders hold to their traditions and superstitions. They do not want police involved, even though their cattle is being stolen, preferring a quiet existence.
