AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Stolen children, stolen land, stolen freedom. Enough to break the spirit but that's what these people have got, they're Too Bloody Strong to go under. The proud cry of survival is in all these stories and you can read the future in them too, because the Wathaurong people of South-West Victoria will be here while there's air to breathe. From making baskets to building fences, from nursing to law, in education and art, the Wathaurong are preparing for the brand new day when the sun rises over a land of equality, not the same land as 200 years ago but a better land than today.' (Publishers Blurb)
