'Aboriginal and immigrant Australians have shared this continent for 200 years. Nineteenth century writers were aware of the importance of the Aboriginal presence, but when the colonists began to write their own history the Aborigines were erased from the account. Recently, this 'history' has been overturned as we rediscover the role of Aborigines in our past.
In this collection of documents our forebears speak for themselves. They present a fascinating picture of how they endeavored to come to terms - emotionally,morally and intellectually - with the victims of the dispossession.'
