Forgotten Narratives - edited by Ian Clark & Fred Cahir

It highlights the interaction of expedition members with Aboriginal people and their subsequent contribution to Aboriginal studies.

Generously illustrated with historical photographs and line drawings, The Aboriginal Story of Burke and Wills  is an important resource for Indigenous people, Burke and Wills history enthusiasts and the wider community.
