What evidence is there of racism when the family moves to the town? What struggles do they encounter? Is there any evidence of hope? ch 1-4

After Benjamin’s abduction, Saul’s family left the bush and began doing “Indian work” in camps outside of the small towns. The pay was bad, and most of it went towards drink. They were often humiliated doing work that nobody else would do. Eventually, the family settled in a town called Redditt, where things were a little better because the family could make slightly more money. Saul’s father stopped drinking quite so much, and his mother, though still heartbroken, began to spend more time with the family, by the fire. This was a sign of hope.
