Canberra, Aboriginal Studies Press, 1998.
Octavo; colour pictorial card covers; a fine copy.
With the contemporary ownership signature of anthropologist Peter Sutton. 'Drawing on original records of the time, Cormick has turned the spotlight away from its traditional focus to illuminate those whom history had forgotten ... the old heroes confess their darkest secrets, facing their own culpability in the destruction of societies and cultures, or blindly march towards their own fame, stamping firmly on law, conscience, and their own better judgement in the process ... The combination of delicious humour and fantasy, and the true horror that must arise from any reading of our indigeus history, makes this collection at once playful and mordant, funny and frightening, and an exciting new work of Australian fiction' (rear cover).
