The Yield

by Winch, Tara June

Knowing that he will soon die, Albert “Poppy” Gondiwindi, a member of the indigenous Wiradjuri tribe, is determined to pass on the language of his people, the traditions of his ancestors, and everything that was ever remembered by those who came before him. After his passing, Poppy’s granddaughter, August, returns home from Europe, where she has lived the past ten years, to attend his burial. Her overwhelming grief is compounded by the pain, anger, and sadness of memory―of growing up in poverty, of the racism she and her people endured, of the mysterious disappearance of her sister when they were children. Determined to make amends and honor Poppy and her family, she vows to save their land from repossession by a mining company―a quest guided by the voice of her grandfather that leads into the past, the stories of her people, the secrets of the river. Told in three masterfully woven narratives, The Yield is a celebration of language and an exploration of what makes a place "home."
