Tan boards with gilt writing on spine. Gift inscription on second leaf of book. Photographic dustwrapper has corners rubbed/chipped, and along the front edges of the dustwrapper there has been rubbing with loss of colour. In the 1970's there were efforts to change Arnhem land to a national park and to then mine the uranium. Bill Neidjie heard this clamour and this book is his reply. His reply is very much along the same lines as chief Seattle, of the Puget Sound tribe, when asked by George Washington in 1853 to sell their tribal lands "if we sell you land, who must remember that it is sacred, and he must ensure children that it is sacred and that each ghostly reflection in the clear water of the lakes tells of events and memories in the life of my people. Man did not weave the web of life: whatever he does to the web, he does to himself." Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.
