Blood, sweat and welfare : a history of white bosses and Aboriginal pastoral workers. /

by Jebb, Mary Anne.

Publisher: Crawley, W.A. University of Western Australia Press 2002Description: xiii, 364 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: This book examines the lives of Aboriginal pastoral workers in the Kimberley region of north-western Australia within the wider historical economic and political context. Jebb s account is based on information from twelve key storytellers from north of the Derby River, complemented by written records from government departments. Jebb contests the view that Aboriginal people were displaced from the stations by the long overdue awarding of equal wages in 1968, arguing that the previous rationing system already failed to meet the Aboriginal people s needs, causing them to seek support and amenities elsewhere. This is a significant piece of Australia s history, enlivened by the memories of those who lived it.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
