The Story of the Blacks: The Aborigines of Australia by Charles White, first published in 1904. The black race of Australia will in a short time be but a memory, for the final issue in the unequal...

More > failure. The subject is surrounded with difficulty. 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

1930’s rural Australia. Baddar, a wild hearted 7 years old would tell you he is special. The grandchild of the last Afghan cameleer and his wife, Rose, an aboriginal woman, Baddar knew he was... More > destined for more. Bored of small town life and overwhelmed by childlike curiosity. Desperate to gain the respect of both his families, Baddar often finds himself conflicted on his identity.

But, when trouble comes to Willow Vale in the form of a devastating bushfire that threatens to destroy their town, it’s the children of Willow Vale Rural School that may be the only ones who can save the town and find their places within the community?< Less
The Customs and Traditions of the Aboriginal Natives of North Western Australia By John G. Withnell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The Customs and Traditions of the Aboriginal Natives of North Western Australia by John G. Withnell. THE object of this work is to preserve, before civilization has made them obsolete, the... More > traditions and customs of the aboriginal natives of the North-West of Western Australia--particularly those of the Pilbarra district--as accurately as possible, based upon upwards of twenty years' observation. Since the discovery of gold and the consequent influx of population the natives cannot carry out their traditions as they used to do--most of the young men being in the employment of the whites, prefer to imitate them, caring little or nothing for their elders' teachings. So it is merely a matter of time when they will become extinct. It is quite probable that the curse of drink together with the supplanting of black children by mixed races will eventually cause them to die out, for it is reasonable to suppose that few intellectual persons will find companionship in the natives...< Less

Bates devoted more than 35 years of her life to studying Aboriginal life, history, culture, rites, beliefs and customs. Living in a tent in small settlements from Western Australia to the edges of... More > the Nullarbor Plain. She researched and wrote millions of words on the subject. She also worked tirelessly for Aboriginal welfare, setting up camps to feed, clothe and nurse the transient population, drawing on her own income and inheritance to meet the needs of the aged. In spite of her fascination with their way of life, Bates was convinced that the Australian Aborigines were a dying race and that her mission was to record as much as she could about them before they disappeared. Her personal life was unconventional. She was said to have worn pistols even in her old age and to have been quite prepared to use them to threaten police when she caught them mistreating 'her' Aborigines. She was also famed for her strict lifelong adherence to Edwardian fashion, including boots, gloves and a veil.< Less

Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Catherine "Katie" Langloh Parker (1 May 1856 – 27... More > March 1940) was a writer who lived in northern New South Wales in the late nineteenth century.She is best known for recording the stories of the Aboriginal people around her. As their culture was in decline, because of pressure by European settlers, her testimony is one of the best accounts we have of the beliefs and stories of the Aboriginal people of north-west New South Wales at that time. However, her accounts reflect European prejudices of the time, and so to modern ears her accounts contain a number of misconceptions and racist comments.
