“”Pigeon” (Tjandamara) was declared an outlaw when he tried to chase settlers from his people’s land during white settlement of the Kimberley region in the 1890s. This is his story from happy childhood through daring exploits to his barbaric death in 1897.
These descriptive writings of courageous adventure among the picturesque gorges, caves, rivers and rugged ranges of the Kimberley make exciting and educational reading for lovers of Australiana.”
