    y Living Aboriginal History of Victoria : Stories in The Oral Tradition Alick Jackomos (editor), Derek Fowell (editor), Melbourne Cambridge : Cambridge University Press , 1991 Z1531680 1991 anthology life story

    The book describes at first hand the experiences of Aborigines living in Victoria. It contains individual stories of hardships and recalls of life on fringe camps, missions and reserves. These accounts are also about the loss of life and the determination of Aboriginal people to survive inhumane treatment and appalling conditions brought about by government legislation and lack of funding. The individual life experiences relive memories of work, crafts, the depression, mission life, building humpies and the forced removal of children. There are individual stories of hope, family reunions and community working together in order to build a better future.
