    LAMENT FOR THE BARKINDJI: The Vanished Tribes of the Darling River Region.

    Edition: First printing.

    Adelaide: Rigby, Limited, (1976) dj. Hardcover first edition - Described as a thoroughly researched account of the "brutal annihilation" of the traditional way of life of the thousands of the Barkindji people who once lived in the Darling River region of New South Wales. They have dwindled to a mere handful, mostly part-Abroriginals. This volume is "an appalling case history of the relationship between white man and black man in Australia" between 1829 to 1940. While explorers like Charles Stuart and Edward John Eyre treated the Barkindji with kindness and received loyal friendship in return, this did nothing to stop the slide into humiliating dependence. Illustrated with photographs. Notes, bibliography, index. 246 pp. Map endpapers. ISBN: 0-72700008X.

    Condition: Very near fine in dark orange boards with white lettering on the spine in a like dustjacket - very minor shelfwear, but otherwise like new.
