We have handled a copy of this book in which was loosely inserted a newspaper cutting from the 'Weekend Australian', October 20-21, 2001. It contained an article by Susan McCulloch-Uehlin detailing the quiet suppression of the first edition of this book. A lengthy sentence on page 105 relating to Grahame Walsh and the Bradshaw paintings in the Kimberley was rewritten for subsequent impressions of the book. The original version in this edition states that Walsh's claims 'have no archaeological basis and are informed by racist perceptions of what Aboriginal people are capable of'.
