'Macklin recounts, with beautiful detail, the following years of Narcisse's life and his transformation . . . a great read for anyone interested in Australia and its overlooked history' Ronan Breathnach, Irish Examiner 'A truly remarkable account drawing upon a version Pelletier gave when he eventually returned to his native France and also on anthropological studies of the Daintree people.' Piers Akerman, Daily Telegraph, Sydney 'An unforgettable tale of transformation and upheaval.' Stuart McLean, Daily Telegraph, Sydney A young boy abandoned in an alien landscape thousands of miles from home is adopted by local people and becomes one of them, welcomed into their community, marrying a wife and raising a child. After seventeen years, he is stolen back to his 'real' life, where he has another family, but dreams constantly of what he has left behind. This is the remarkable true story of a French cabin boy Narcisse Pelletier who, after disembarking from his ship the Saint-Paul with the rest of its crew in search of drinking water, found himself separated from his shipmates and in the end abandoned on the north coast of Queensland, Australia. Narcisse was adopted by an Aboriginal group who welcomed him as one of their own for seventeen years, during which time he had a family of his own. In 1875, though, he was kidnapped by the brig John Bell and was returned eventually to his family in Saint-Gilles, France, where he became a lighthouse keeper. Robert Macklin makes skilful use of Narcisse's own memoir Chez les sauvages along with new research to tell this extraordinary story. Robert is a Queenslander so knows the terrain and the people of the area in which Narcisse was left behind. Through Noel Pearson's Cape York Institute, he has arranged to meet descendants of the people who took the French cabin boy in and who know the stories of his time in Australia. Robert has also had access to a great deal of material on the early history of the Cape through the Australian National Library. He has drawn on the significant resources of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) in Canberra on Aboriginal culture and history in Queensland and the Cape. In addition, he has made use of Narcisse Pelletier's own writings, including his account of his time in Australia, as well as several contemporaneous accounts of the Kennedy expedition to the area, including one from a member of the party. The author has made several trips to Cape York and one to Saint-Gilles and Saint-Nazaire in France.

Lands Of Shame

Some 90,000 of Australia’s 500,000 Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders live appallingly deprived lives in ‘homelands’ thought remote Australia. Their health and housing are so abysmal that their expectation of life is 20 years shorter than that of other Australians. Deprived of education, they cannot access jobs even in settlements near mines and tourist resorts, leading to welfare dependency and consequent family and social dysfunction. The ‘homelands’ were created with the best of intentions. However they have not only failed to provide a living for Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders, but they have stultified the development of traditional culture so that alcoholism and violence demean and destroy many lives. Lands of Shame analyses why the ‘homelands’ experiment has led to Third World living conditions in the midst of Australia’s prosperity. It reviews the evidence on demographic trends, law and order, land rights, joblessness and welfare, education, health, housing and governance, and assesses Commonwealth, State and Territory policies. With an eye to a better future, Lands of Shame also discusses policies that would give Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders in remote Australia the same opportunities and choices that other Australians expect.

"From time immemorial, a people called the Djabugay lived in the rainforests behind Cairns in Tropical Far North Queensland. Trade routes from the coast to the lush tablelands and beyond linked established settlements; outrigger canoes voyaged along the coast and out into the Great Barrier Reef." "Today, 130 years after the coming of the white man, the Djabugay are a remnant - their lands taken away from them, their Storywaters partially lost. But they are a remnant determined to make their way in a transformed world." "Djabugay Country is the story of this people and their struggle - what happened to them and how it happened. It takes us from first contact between the rainforest dwellers and the newcomers to the present day. Through accounts of the lives of families and individuals, it shows how out of dispossession and tragedy has come strength and hope."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE UNFORGETTABLE MEMOIR DON'T TAKE YOUR LOVE TO TOWNAll My Mob, Ruby Langford Ginibi's fifth book, is a compelling collection of reminiscences on family life, Indigenous social issues, 'home' and being Aboriginal in today's Australia.All My Mobis a fascinating compilation of new stories of contemporary urban Koori life, and includes selected highlights from Ruby's earlier memoir Real Deadly. In spite of often tragic circumstances, these tales are told with Ruby's trademark humour and spirit and remind us of the strong sense of community and culture that has survived in Indigenous Australia.The stories tell how Ruby's people, the Bundjalung nation, live today. Ruby's great gift for storytelling illustrates one of the Aboriginal survival mechanisms - if her people did not laugh, they would surely cry because of the dispossession of their land and the way it affected them, and continues to do so.

Dark Vanishings

Patrick Brantlinger here examines the commonly held nineteenth-century view that all "primitive" or "savage" races around the world were doomed sooner or later to extinction. Warlike propensities and presumed cannibalism were regarded as simultaneously noble and suicidal, accelerants of the downfall of other races after contact with white civilization. Brantlinger finds at the heart of this belief the stereotype of the self-exterminating savage, or the view that "savagery" is a sufficient explanation for the ultimate disappearance of "savages" from the grand theater of world history. Humanitarians, according to Brantlinger, saw the problem in the same terms of inevitability (or doom) as did scientists such as Charles Darwin and Thomas Henry Huxley as well as propagandists for empire such as Charles Wentworth Dilke and James Anthony Froude. Brantlinger analyzes the Irish Famine in the context of ideas and theories about primitive races in North America, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere. He shows that by the end of the nineteenth century, especially through the influence of the eugenics movement, extinction discourse was ironically applied to "the great white race" in various apocalyptic formulations. With the rise of fascism and Nazism, and with the gradual renewal of aboriginal populations in some parts of the world, by the 1930s the stereotypic idea of "fatal impact" began to unravel, as did also various more general forms of race-based thinking and of social Darwinism.
