    'An enduring record of one of our greatest heroes.' Sam Watson, activist and writer..In the 1840s, white settlement in the north was under attack. European settlers were in awe of Aboriginal physical fitness and fighting prowess, and a series of deadly raids on homesteads made even the townspeople of Brisbane anxious...Young warrior Dundalli was renowned for his size and strength, and he was given the task by his elders to lead the resistance against the ever increasing incursions on their traditional lands. Their response was embedded in Aboriginal law and Dundalli became one of their greatest lawmen. For twelve years, with his band of warriors he had the settlers in thrall, evading capture again and again, until he was finally arrested and publicly executed...Warrior is the extraordinary story of one of Australia's little-known heroes, one of many Aboriginal men to die protecting their country. It is also a fresh and compelling portrait of life in the early days of white settlement of Brisbane and south east Queensland.
