AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From time immemorial, a people called the Djabugay lived in the rainforests behind Cairns in Tropical Far North Queensland. Trade routes from the coast to the lush tablelands and beyond linked established settlements; outrigger canoes voyaged along the coast and out into the Great Barrier Reef.'

'Today, 130 years after the coming of the white man, the Djabugay are a remnant - their lands taken away from them, their Storywaters partially lost. But they are a remnant determined to make their way in a transformed world.'

'Djabugay Country is the story of this people and their struggle - what happened to them and how it happened. It takes us from first contact between the rainforest dwellers and the newcomers to the present day. Through accounts of the lives of families and individuals, it shows how out of dispossession and tragedy has come strength and hope.' (Source: Google Books website)
