In Beyond the Lattice Susan Sickert seeks answers to her questions about this fascinating pearling town. She steps off the verandah, away from the pearlers’ world of privileged, privacy and power behind the lattice. She looks instead for the heart of Broome in the lives of the thousands of Asian, Aboriginal and mixed race men and women.
Beyond the Lattice: Brooome’s early years provides rare insights into the people, politics, colour and atmosphere that have been fundamental to the creation of modern Broome.
