This book is a powerful and moving history of Aboriginal people in the south west of Western Australia covering a time when they experienced profound changes in their way of life and status in the community. Their independent life in the bush, on stations and on their own small farms was progressively eroded by discriminatory laws, bureaucratic interference and overt racism. The Aborigines' dignity and strength as they battled to maintain their independence and pride offer lessons for all people.
