AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Pyap School is based on a real incident (which didn't happen in the South Australian Riverland, although Daisy Bates did live for a time camped along the Murray at Pyap). Bates was always a controversial figure in Australian history, but also admired by thousands prior to her death. As she aged, two junior officers were sent to bring her to town to ‘seek help’, as many believed she was becoming unstable. This is an imagined exchange between Bates and two officers sent to fetch her. (Publication abstract)
