Strangers on Country | Author: David Hartley
Back in stock soon.
Giom, Anco and Duramboi are the names of just three young shipwreck survivors and convict escapees who were given refuge by First Nations?communities during the nineteenth century. No one knows exactly how many received sustenance from the local people, but there are some documented accounts of these experiences.?Strangers on Country?includes the stories of six Europeans and the people who cared for them.
Based on historical records each story in this book is told through two historical fiction narratives. The first is from the point of view of an First Nations?person who befriends the stranger in their land. The second is from the point of view of the castaway or convict who is given refuge. At the end of each chapter, there is a section of facts and information. Too often Australian history is told only from the point of view of the Europeans who sailed here from across the world
