Uluru: An Aboriginal History of Ayers Rock
"Robert Layton describes how religion, subsistence patterns, and land ownership all form part of a living culture, despite the fact that the Yakuntjajara and Pitjantjatjara have lived like refugees in their own country for the past hundred years. He traces the history of their dispossession and their relations with bureaucracies, cattle stations, missions and police"--p.  of cover.
