AbstractHistoryArchive Description

If Native Legends (1929) made David Unaipon the foremost Aboriginal writer, Colin Johnson became the foremost Aboriginal novelist and theorist with the publication of Wild Cat Falling (1965) and Writing from the Fringe (1990). While displayng an intimate knowledge of Aboriginal culture, Johnson has never tried to hide his unfamiliarity with vernacular speech.
