“W. E. Harney, who lived in the Northern Territory of Australia for over forty years had a unique opportunity for studying the Aborigines of that land.  He is, in fact, considered an authority on his subject.  “Bill” Harney shows that the Aborigines have developed a great culture and social organization within the limits of their environment and that despite the conflict that arose from contact with another culture, causing deterioration for a time, they have gradually forged ahead until they are once more moving upwards into eh very environment that once shattered their camp life and hunting pattern.  Enlightenment is shed on a much-discussed subject.”
