"Guides, linguists, diplomats, interpreters, trackers, troopers, servants, companions, labourers, concubines, nursemaids, cooks, stockworkers, porters, pearl-divers, mine-workers.
This fascinating story of Australia’s black pioneers has been largely overlooked by both black and white commentators.
Henry Reynolds’ book The Other Side of the Frontier was described as ‘the most important book ever on Aboriginal-European contact’. With the White People now provides a challenging reinterpretation of the role of those blacks whose efforts were vital to the development of colonial Australia."
