AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sixteen "whitefellas" explore their relationship with Aboriginal Australia, looking at events in their own lives which shaped their understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal culture and history... In their lively, highly readable, and personal stories these writers share experiences and wrestle with the issues of today, from dispossession and disadvantage, through struggle, to achievement and celebration.' (Source: Duncan Graham, 'Introduction')
