    This book is the first major study of Aboriginal associations with the Burke and Wills expedition of 1860–61. It provides a history of Aboriginal cross-cultural exchanges with the expedition, as well as the various relief expeditions.

    The book offers a reinterpretation of the literature surrounding Burke and Wills, using official correspondence, expedition journals and diaries, visual art, and archaeological and linguistic research – and then complements this with references to Aboriginal oral histories and social memory. It highlights the interaction of expedition members with Aboriginal people and their subsequent contribution to Aboriginal studies.

    Generously illustrated with historical photographs and line drawings, The Aboriginal Story of Burke and Wills is an important resource for Indigenous people, Burke and Wills history enthusiasts and the wider community.
