Seven Seasons in Aurukun: My Unforgettable Time at a Remote Aboriginal School

Arriving in a tiny Aboriginal community in far north Queensland, Paula had little idea what to expect. Seven Seasons in Aurukun is her very personal story of teaching at the local school and making a life for herself in a challenging new world. In the unrelenting tropical heat, she discovers there's an immediacy and intensity in everything. From the mischievous children in her bilingual classroom to the local politics, nothing is quite what it seems.
