Summary

John Danalis grew up with an Aboriginal skull sitting on the mantelpiece of his family's home. This is the story of the journey he undertakes when he decides to return the skull to its traditional owners.

This mission has a profound effect on his life, as he begins to question why the skull was in their home, where it came from, and who it should belong to. He quickly learns that returning the skull is not going to be a straightforward task.

Part history, part detective story, part cultural discovery and emotional journey, this is a book for young and old, showing the transformative and healing power of true reconciliation.
