Notes

  • Dedication:

    This book is dedicated to the treasured memories of my parents Albert and Rosie Holt. My father, Albert, was an inspirational leader and a determined Aboriginal warrior. He was dedicated to family life, and worked hard and long to provide for his family. My mother, Rosie Guilema Holt, was a very powerful, loyal wife, and to her children an inspirational matriach. Mum and Dad deserve all the credit for this book. Albert Holt.
