Notes

  • Note to the Reader. This book is based on historical sources and uses factual information, but as it is a work of fiction, the result more than anything of my own imagination, historical parallels with actual people should be assumed only in their general and not particular sense. A list of books consulted while writing this novel appears at the end. Aboriginal men reading this novel are advised that material in the first part of Dyirra's narrative could be culturally sensitive and they may wish to avoid it. [Debra Adelaide]
