Oxford Bookworms Library: Rabbit-Proof Fence : 1000 Headwords Level 3 Paperback
Part of the Oxford Bookworms ELT series
Classics, modern fiction, non-fiction and more. Written for secondary and adult students the Oxford Bookworms Library has seven reading levels from A1-C1 of the CEFR. Fourteen-year-old Molly and her cousins Daisy and Gracie were mixed-race Aborigines.
In 1931 they were taken away from their families and sent to a camp to be trained as good 'white' Australians.
They were told to forget their mothers, their language, their home.
But Molly would not forget. She and her cousins escaped and walked back to Jigalong, 1,600 kilometres away, following the rabbitproof fence as their guide across the desert.
This is the true story of that walk, told by Molly's daughter, Doris.
It is also a prize-winning film. CEFR B1 Word count 10,600
