All the Proud Tribesmen Wikipedia
The book tells the story of a 12-year-old boy from an imaginary island in the Torres Strait and of a volcanic disaster that drives the local fishing and pear-diving population to migrate to a neighbouring island.
E.B. in The Canberra Times was brief: "Written for children Miss Tennant's new work of fiction is an intelligent story of the missionary stage of the changing pattern of social living for the island people of our near north."
As was the reviewer in Kirkus Reviews: "Kylie Tennant tells a good story and enriches it with a vivid picture of the islands and the men who inhabit them."
