Night of the Riot
- RRP: $22.99
Did you ever try to do what you thought was the right thing, but ended up getting into big trouble? I did. It was on the night of the riot.
'Snow' Goodison works in Wanganui as an errand boy for German pork butcher, Mr Schmidt. He has a care-free life, playing football and colle...cting cigarette cards. But in May 1915, the passenger liner Lusitania is sunk off the coast of Ireland by a German submarine. Shocked by this horror, a group of Wanganui citizens lead a patriotic march to Mr Schmidt's shop. It is attacked and looted. Snow was seen outside the shop during the trouble and is accused of being involved in the riot. Would he do such a thing?
Based on an actual event, Night of the Riot is the riveting story of a 14-year old boy learning about his place in the world and standing up for what he thinks is right.
Themes include: cultural identity and difference; loyalty, friendship and personal responsibility; definitions of 'home'; emigration.
