Engrossing ...... a living history. The fascinating observations and life of Father Seraphim Sanz, a Benedictine monk, who served his God at Kalumburu, an isolated Aboriginal Mission in Australia's Far North West. and the impressions of an amazing Aboriginal elder, Dolores Djinmora who worked along side Father Sanz in his Christian endeavours.

(Diana Temby, Executive Director, Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission)

A fascinating account - Father Seraphim Sanz and Dolores Djinmora describe the lives and conditions of the Aboriginal people of the far flung Kalumburu Benectine Mission in the Kimberley of Western Australia from the 1930's to the present .... a living history of a time little known or understood.

(Hon. Justice James Macken, QC OAM)

When the true story of Australia's involvement with the far North Kimberley comes to be written, few local reputations will survive wholly untarnished. But one name will stand out: that of the Spanish missionary monk, Dom Seraphim Sanz, whose profound, self-sacrificing love for the indigenous people of Kalumburu has been measured out over the course of six decades. These pages, published only after long struggle, detail the observations and reflections of a remarkable man condemned to live through dark times.
