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

More > Life in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land. Van Diemen's Land was the original name used by most Europeans for the island of Tasmania, now part of Australia. The Dutch explorer Abel Tasman was the first European to land on the shores of Tasmania. In Tasmania, from beginnings of the darkest moral shade, and now that the old order has changed, beneficent and flourishing, from surroundings of the most favorable character—from conditions of private, social and public life of which any nation might be proud—look out upon the fast-fading picture of the past, and marvel exceedingly at the change. "Read me anything but history," said Walpole; "that is sure to be false." And a good many in Australia living at the present day would give plenty to create a distance for and hatred of colonial history.< Less

More > evidence to shore up the official police line...but he can't go on with it. He confesses and expects prison. Born in a Nazi concentration camp, Stan Hanuszewicz, like Joe, is a Vietnam Vet.

This book was central to a Tasmanian Commission of Inquiry. The State government refused special ‘phone-tap’ powers. Commissioner, Dennis Mahoney QC, said his finding of 'Justifiable Homicide' may have been different. 'Disquiet' is now in the Australian National Library and the Tasmanian State library. It is heavily discounted to make it available to law students and the general public to ensure that this event remain 'on the record'. A sequel ‘Build-up To a Disquiet’ is now complete.< Less

I have always been fascinated with this little book. On reading its pages, once living characters leapt out of a sophisticated part of our Tasmanian social heritage, rarely caught in modern writing.... More > Through letters and diaries, a relative of our pioneering free settlers from a rather privileged class, painted a living and lasting memory of her forebears, their travails and their triumphs in a part of VDL. Through the advent of scanners and software and the world wide web, I have re-published and even elaborated as footnotes, on topics and photos that the author never had access to. This story deserves to be out of the archives and back onto bookshelves. It pays tribute to Kate Hamilton Dougharty’s original works. I daresay she would be delighted at the knowledge of her book being resurrected from so many worthy ‘out of print’ publications, Paul Tapp, March 2011.< Less
