AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The book tells the story of the Yolnu and two missionaries, Harold & Ella Shepherdson who lived in Arnhem Land for 50 years. Together they built the town on Elcho Island working side by side to develop the infrastructure needed. Harold used his planes to connect with Yolnu living inland and in other places along the coast. He encouraged the Yolnu to protect their land by staying on their country.'  (Publication summary)
