Overview

TRIBAL SCARRING (book 2)

The clan face a dilemma - Billy doesn't want to go on his Walkabout yet and besides, he hasn't even been initiated into a man. Can hardly blame him, they want to use the slice of a knife where no boy wants a knife to go. The spirit of his mother forces the issue with a violent attack by a giant Red kangaroo. She's good like that - helpful. The old Magic Man wants to seal Billy's horrific injuries under the coals of a fire, exactly as he would initiate an Aboriginal Warrior. He's helpful too. Billy must decide whether to endure the pain of initiation or remain a boy.

"Though Tribal Scarring was more serious, it was really great. One of the best YA books I have read! Kudos! I recommend everyone to read it." JB Cacdac

"Great coming of age story. Isn't Pindaari a loveable character." Anne, Australia

"I can't wait to see what Billy's next adventure is!" Jessica B, USA

URBAN HUNTERS is laugh-out-loud, gut-churning, heart-wrenching storytelling at its best. Unlike anything you've ever read, in typical Taaffe fashion. Hilarious as usual. Always surprising. Wonderful!

Meet the Author

Gary lives in a small coastal town in NSW, Australia. There's open ocean on one side, a massive saltwater lake on the other and enough virgin bushland in the surrounding areas to lose yourself for a week.

When he's not writing, Gary's hunting deer for the freezer or putting around the lake fishing for flathead.

He's a Toolmaker by trade, a successful inventor and now, a writer. Urban Hunters is the culmination of his inventiveness, his enthusiasm for the outdoors and his fun-filled sense of humour.

There are thirteen books in the Urban Hunters series.

“Tribal Scarring” was quite a serious work. Billy is still guided by his mother to leave his people and perpetuate his clan. In order to prepare himself, Billy must exhibit bravery and the willingness to know that sometimes you have to do the difficult things to do in the name of duty. Taaffe weaves culture, history and tradition into the narrative so that children (and adults) come away having been entertained but with a new knowledge of an old culture. The title “Tribal Scarring” comes from when Billy is looking to provide for his family hunting kangaroos and one of them scratches him. The approach of Billy’s family to the wound is so separate from the modern reaction that is serves as a perfect example of something that takes a child out of their modern environment and to one that many North American children will never come close to experiencing.  Taaffe’s series is a wonderful action series for boy and girls who don’t mind a little grit in their stories.
