AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This book contains a beautifully described journey across Australia's desert, and into its shocking past. Lindqvist travels through the south of the country, lyrically describing its landscape, flora and fauna and geology, while also telling the history of the country, and revealing the shocking treatment of its Aboriginal peoples.He catalogues some truly shocking abuses, such as the rounding up of Aborigine women for transportation to the chillingly named "Isle of the Dead" for inappropriate and often fatal syphilis treatment; and the extensive forced separation of 'halfblood' children from their families to squalid, prison-like camps. Stretching from the formation of the Australian continent 600 million years ago to the 2002 hunger strikes in the Woomera detention camp, "Terra Nullius" leaves us with a strong sense of Australia as a piece of earth, steeped in geological and tragic human history. Includes travels in Western Australia, the Kimberley, Perth and Pinjarra (Libraries Australia).'
