Summary
"Drawing on painstaking research into obscure though rich documentary sources, Aboriginal oral traditions, and first hand investigations conducted in the region over thirty-five years, Darrell Lewis pieces together the complex interactions between the environment, the powerful and warlike Aboriginal tribes and the settlers and their cattle, which produced what truly became A Wild History." - Inside front cover
