“M.J. Unwin trained as a state school teacher in Brisbane. 'From his early years he was used to hearing his parents recount tales of the Aborigines who frequently visited the farm at Caboolture to which his father was taken by dray when he was still too young to walk, and of those who, nearly three-quarters of a century ago, lived in bush country that has since become part of inner suburban Brisbane. Unwin's continuing interest in the original owners of this land resulted in his writing Booran. Source: Pupils' Companion to Booran (1960).”
