For white Australia's bicentenary in 1988, Aboriginal people took the defiant slogan: WE HAVE SURVIVED!
No nation proves this better than the Bundjalung caught between the penal settlements of Port Macquarie and Moreton Bay, invaded by loggers, farmers, developers and tourists, their culture endures and even flourishes.
This book tells their inspiring story, the how and why of survival.
By Jennifer Hoff
The invasion begins, Cutting the forests, Many strangers - one land, squatters and settlers, Malice, mistakes and misery, The black wars, life in the bush, Way of the warriors, Women's lives, Clever people, special places, and Learning from the Elders.
