The Aboriginal Story of Burke and Wills: Forgotten Narratives

Ian D. Clark, Fred A. Cahir

This book is the first major study of Aboriginal associations with the Burke and Wills expedition of 1860-61. It provides a history of Aboriginal cross cultural exchanges with the expedition, as well as the various relief expeditions. The book offers a reinterpretation of the literature surrounding Burke and Wills, using official correspondence, expedition journals and diaries, visual art, and archaeological and linguistic research - and then complements this with references to Aboriginal oral histories and social memory.
