Captain Dampier was the first Englishman known to have made the acquaintance of the Australian natives, whom he calls "the poor winking people of New Holland, the miserablest people on earth," and so forth. During the intervening two centuries we have not added much to our knowledge regarding them. They have no written language, and are forbidden to speak of the dead: two serious obstacles to research. During my wanderings in Western Australia, in the capacity of a mining engineer, I came across a good many of the natives; and taking a profound interest in everything connected with the colony I resolved to set down in brief and simple form such facts...< Less

More > era hell-bent on supplying the colonies and the giant cities of the northern hemisphere with their insatiable industrial needs. The many out of print publications to which I have referred, are conservative in their appraisal of the sealing and whaling hey-day of Tasmania, particularly the expansive bays and estuaries of the south and the islands of Bass Strait, the Furneaux Group. But it was the universal expression of the day of those authors, not to paraphrase in any emotional terms, the end result of that period of exploitation.They came, they slaughtered and regarded their new-found paradise as no more than their 'happy hunting-grounds' & moved on...for no other reason than that of the industrial pragmatic...there was nothing left.

More > and New England came to share in the rich harvest. It was the practice of merchants of Hobart and Sydney to send gangs of sealers to live on the islands, providing them with some provisions, but expecting them in the main to subsist on the flesh of kangaroo, wombat, and emu.

Because of the need to qualify for a quarto Lulu self-publishing format, it was necessary to include material from other out of print publications...a fortuitous requirement, given the result, an insight into an otherwise forgotten part of Tasmania's and indeed global history of the callous and shameful treatment of indigenous inhabitants.< Less
