Customer Review

23 October 2015
This book describes the relentless struggle of the Gunggari people of SW Queensland over the past decades to claim back their land. The story as it unfolds, however, is about more than land. It is one of self-determination, sheer persistence and incredible patience. The authors, who have worked in partnership over many years, provide a comprehensive and compelling account of life for the Gunggari prior to colonisation, warfare and dispossession. It is a story of survival, resilience and cultural vitality. It highlights how difficult it is for colonised peoples to re-establish rights to the land that was stolen from them. It provides real insights into the challenges, power negotiations and compromises needed to achieve common goals. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about understanding the reality of Native Title in Australia.
