Summary
Having completed a career in the Australian government dealing with taxation, Aboriginal affairs, and land issues, Roberts recounts the history of what he calls the most colorful and lawless part of Australia's last frontier, centered on the town of Borrooloola in the Northern Territory, from the arrival of the first overlanders in 1872 to 1900. He draws from government files, parliamentary papers, first-hand accounts by white participants, and detailed descriptions from Aboriginal people whose immediate families were directly involved in the violence.
