1.0 out of 5 stars A misleading book
By Ivy T. on 23 October 2020
I loved the books presentation, well written and interesting. I must admit being sceptic about most of the information, since my own pioneering ancestors crossed vast areas of undisturbed Aboriginal territory to reach Wentworth, then the Murray river land, from Adelaide. Their first-hand records handed down through the generations were very factual. As hunters and gatherers, there was no evidence of productive agriculture, and the first people were nomadic within their own territories, in their pursuit of fresh pasture, allowing the land to regenerate. They did gather cereal grains, taking only what they needed, and leaving the rest to reseed and feed the local wildlife, which broadcast the seed elsewhere to expand their resources, in open savannah country, and yes, they did control burn-offs in suitable weather conditions, something SA famers did learn from Aborigines in various regions of South Australia. The Aborigines crushed the grain using a grindstone, no milling. They lived in small communities and slept in gender-separated wurlies made from timber, bark, mud, skins and reeds, in small communities, aware of disease-spread due to cluster populations. thus there were no large building constructions.
My people had a lot of wonderful memories of these people and held them in high regard, being saddened to see their hunting and fishing territory fenced off from them by white settlers. There is no need to paint them as anything but what these amazing people really were. They lived by nature and the land owned them, not the reverse!
