AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Hope Ebsworth has been visiting and walking his traditonal country, the Chanel Country around Cooper Creek, since his childhood. In this book he talks about growing up between Tibooburra, Wanaaring and Bourke and the time he spent with his many relatives and important old Aboriginal people including his father Cecil Ebsworth, who was well known as an elder of the Wangkamurra people. Hope talks of the beauty of his traditional country in south-west Queensland and the border regions of South Australia and New South Wales and the struggle to protect it from mining interests.'
