Reading the Country: Introduction to Nomadology
Liverpool University Press, 1996 - Aboriginal Australians - 280 pages
In 1983 the three authors of this book undertook a journey into Roebuck Plains, an area in the north of Western Australia which takes its name from a ship which was sailed into the region in 1699 by the European explorer, William Dampier. It was then, and until less than a century ago, inhabited by Aboriginal people. Today the plains form part of a pastoral lease, and no Aboriginals live there.
