Written in a distinctively Australian voice, this remarkable account explores the conversion of a Wotjubaluk Aboriginal youth to Christianity in 1860. Through Nathanael Pepper's conversion, this record conducts a major reappraisal of the nature of Aboriginal and European relations in the first decades of contact in southern Australia. A unique and beautifully written blend of popular history, spirituality, culture, and personal quest, this history examines various aspects of the event, including the ritual slaughter of settlers' stock, the choice of Pepper's baptismal name, the settlers' punitive and murderous raids, and the Moravian Church's celebration of Pepper's conversion.
