Savages All in the Colonies. "Skins" by Sarah Hay. [review]
Set beyond the pale of white settlement, Sarah Hay's "Skins" is a compelling and often violent story of an Englishwoman shipwrecked off the southern coast of Western Australia in 1835. Winner of the 2002 Australian/Vogel Literary Award, it is a powerful evocation of a time and place rarely featured in Australian literary fiction.
