Product Description

East Timor. 1975.
Jose Rodrigus was fourteen years old when the Indonesians came.
This is his moving and extraordinary story.
It is the story of his unusual relationship with Uncle Adolfo and the fighting bird they train. As the politics of their country erupt and the people, including Jose's family, have their daily lives changed for ever, Jose is caught up in adventure and danger. In the middle of the turmoil, Uncle Adolfo buys a bird to train for the local cockfights. And the bird becomes Jose's symbol of courage and strength, a magnificient fighting cock whom his uncle said must never have a name.
Because courage has no other name.
And it is the thing that Jose clings to as his world is torn apart.
