No Sunlight Singing is a 1960 novel about Australian Aborigines and the injustices they suffer. It is set in the Northern Territory in the 1930s and 1940s, and tells the story of Mary, a young part-Aboriginal struggling against prejudice and sexual exploitation by white men.
The book reflects the conditions witnessed by the author, Joe “Yorky” Walker, who spent years in northern Australia as an outback worker and union leader.
No Sunlight Singing has been out of print for many years, but now it is made freely available on this website.
