Mrs Pollard, St John Fisher RC High School

Bone Talk

This is one read I struggled to get through, I didn't like the setting or the story. Set in the Phillipines in the late 19th century we are introduced to a mountain tribe who live on their wits and revere their ancestor gods. The Americans enter bringing their weapons and culture with them, there are the two soldiers on horseback and separately Mr. William who is peaceable and just interested in the tribal culture. The two soldiers manage to dominate the men of the tribe taking them away on a mission which leaves the village women and children unattended. This begs the question, why didn't the men of the tribe just fight back? They were perfectly capable. Not a winner for me.
