The Unlucky Australians
Frank Hardy, on a self-searching trip to the Northern Territory, becomes involved in a heart-rending struggle between a courageous Aboriginal tribe, the Gurindji, and the management of a foreign-owned cattle station. After a hundred years of exploitation and discrimination, the Aboriginal stockmen finally go on strike and demand better pay and conditions, and a share of the land that was once theirs. How they fought the management of the station, the Welfare Branch, the police and the apathy of the Australian Government, makes stirring and disturbing reading.
