When the Dust Come in Between

Aboriginal viewpoints in the East Kimberley prior to 1982

When the Dust Come in Between by Bruce Shaw
Add to cart
US$ 22.00

Eighteen Aboriginal men and women of the East Kimberley unveil their life stories as they reminisce about work on cattle stations, horses, wages, drinking, fighting, citizenship, traditional law, kinship, women, marriage and race relations.

This history has been compiled from tape recorded conversations with Bruce Shaw. Individually, they are not so much life histories as collections of Aboriginal opinions, personal reflections, selective memories and speculations about the future. The recording was done from July 1973 to October 1974.
