Why could this story have not been set in a city?Those Nungas were tough, much tougher than us. But Blacky is at a crossroads. Nathan, of course, works it out and all the pieces fall into place. Why did Gary feel sorry for his coach? What was Gwynne really trying to achieve here? The second oldest, Blacky's only talent seems to be coming up with nicknames, including his own. Blacky saw that his friends didn't care for any Nungas and decided to go to Dumby's funeral to show respect. They're stuck in a kind of racist Catch, and honestly, I can't blame them for being royally pissed about it. Yet Blacky's voice remains largely upbeat and optimistic, in an adolescent way, and his observations of other people and his world overall are both insightful and humorous, epitomising that other stereotypical quality Australians are known for: the ability to avoid self-indulgence. What did Gary and Cathy talk about? Who is Darcy and how does he earn money? Through the thoughts of Blacky, we understand the difficulty in being friends with aboriginal boy Dumby Red. Shows all of us this throughout the telling of Blacky's romance with his father and how liquor effected this kind of, how this individual worries fitting in and exactly how different he's and how his siblings stand and safeguard Blacky from other abusive daddy. The regulars in the pub were friendly to Tommy Red.
