Works about this Work

Encounters with Stones George Main , 2014 single work essay
— Appears in: PAN , no. 11 2014-2015; (p. 77-81)
'We've had a hilltop fenced, to exclude sheep. A stony rise peppered with ancient white box trees. Sturdy, gnarled branches hollowed by time, cherished by birds, possums, sheltering their young. The fencer lives nearby, on a farm called Heaven. These paddocks, fertile slopes of productive red clay, north of the Murrumbidgee River in southern New South Wales, are heavenly. Such gentle terrain, waterholes on Pinchgut Creek, yellow box with monumental trunks, heartwood and bark and sap, lively records of so many seasons.' (Publication abstract)
[Review Essay] Six Australian Battlefields : The Black Resistance to Invasion and the White Struggle against Colonial Oppression; A Hundred Years War Richard Buchhorn , 1989 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Aboriginal Studies , no. 2 1989; (p. 76-78)

'In the mid-1950's my requests of a number of bookshops for publications on matters Aboriginal yielded but one: A.O. Neville's Australia's Coloured Minority (1947), the analysis and prescriptions of a retired Western Australian Commissioner of Native Affairs. This was the era of 'The Great Australian Silence' of W.E.H. Stanner's 1968 Boyer Lectures. That silence has since been broken; and these two books make a welcome further contribution. They also serve as reminders that the tasks of getting the story together, sorting out the terms of reference, and relating the past to the present, are still in their early days.' (Introduction)
