Written by a somewhat controversial figure, this is the memoir of Daisy Bates, a self taught anthropologist who spent almost 4 decades studying Aboriginal life. Although this book became a highly influential international bestseller, its disreputable claims regarding Aboriginal cannibalism and infanticide, and the 'doomed' fate of the Aboriginal race, led to it being criticised as inaccurate and defamatory towards Aboriginal Australians.
