She was best known for her 1996 book Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence, a story of three Aboriginal girls, among them Pilkington's mother, Molly Craig, who escaped from the Moore River Native Settlement in Western Australia and travelled for nine weeks to return to their family.
Written by her
Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence is considered a powerful example of the mistreatments endured by the Stolen Generations. Her follow-up book, Under the Wintamarra Tree, details her own escape from Moore River. Home to Mother is her children's edition of Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence. In the four books, Caprice, a Stockman's Daughter, Follow the Rabbit-proof Fence, Home to Mother, and Under the Wintamarra Tree, Pilkington documented three generations of women in her family.The book was made into an internationally successful film in 2002, directed by Phillip Noyce.
Books of Doris
Rabbit-Proof Fence by Doris Pilkington is the true story of the escape of three young girls from a settlement school they were forced to attend in Australia, over one thousand miles away from their families and homes. The three girls, along with many others, were mandated to be transferred to Moore River Settlement School, which was a school for half-caste Aborigine children. With the influx first of white raiders and pirates and then "peaceful" English settlers, there was a multitude of half-English children. The government considered these children a step above full-blooded Aborigine children and felt obliged to take them to schools where they could be educated. These youngsters were unceremoniously snatched from their families and carted off to these settlements.
Molly, at fourteen, was the eldest of the three girls who are at the heart of the story. She, along with her relatives Gracie, eleven, and Daisy, just eight years old, were dismayed and frightened by their fate. Molly, a free-spirited girl and natural leader, decided on the evening before the first day of school that she and her two friends would control their own destiny. In the morning, she announced to the other two girls that they would be escaping.
Aboriginal Australians are legally defined as people who are members "of the Aboriginal race of Australia"
The category "Aboriginal Australians" was coined by the British after they began colonising Australia in 1788, to refer collectively to all people they found already inhabiting the continent, and later to the descendants of any of those people.
-Mr. A. O. Neville
Molly is the oldest of the three sisters. She is fourteen years old. She is brave and she guides her sisters back to their families running away from the police and the tracker.
Daisy is eight years old and she is Molly's little sister. Both Daisy and Molly loves their relationship with their mother and grandmother.
Gracie is ten years old and is Molly and Daisy's cousin. Gracie cares a lot about her mother and wants go home.
Mr. A. O. Neville
Mr. Neville is the head of the Moore River "Native Settlement". He likes to be in control and does not like it when things don't go his way. He is responsible for the aboriginal society and all half-castes.
He has to recapture the three girls that has escaped. He also has a daughter at one of the camps.
He helps Mr. Neville to find and bring back the half-cast children who try to escape, and bring them back to Moore River "Native Settlement". The Tracker and the Federal police try to find the three girls Molly, Gracie and Daisy on their long journey following the rabbit proof fence.
I think this book is really very sad , I enjoy reading it. With this book you learn a lot of about Australian Aborigines , and see the iniquities of their life .
