The Cry for the Dead


Based on her grandfather’s detailed diary, Judith Wright’s account of the push of pastoralists north through Queensland towards the Gulf of Carpentaria takes the reader through the mechanism for subordinating the land and its people to the economics of profit from meat and wool without any regard to the cost. It is a harrowing story of greed and destruction of environment and of indigenous society and culture.
