'Survival In Our Own Land presents history in 'South Australia' for the first time from the point of view of Nungas, as many 'Aborigines' call themselves, showing Goonyas, as Europeans are called, as the invaders.
Almost 150 Nungas have told how the Goonya invasion and implementation of Goonya law and policy have affected us. Fifty years ago for 'South Australia's' centenary we were a chapter in a Goonya book. Now we are our own books.
The stories, in prose and poetry, speak volumes of much that has been previously omitted from history and textbooks. Many have been told for the first time for this book. Extracts from Goonya archival documents, many never before published, have also been included to illustrate Goonya attitudes and actions which have caused the deaths of many of our people and the destruction of much of our culture.'
