Provenance: Professor Archibald Grenfell Price, with his pencilled ownership signature (1939) on the front flyleaf. Beneath this is a 2003 inscription in pencil in another hand: 'Dear ... this year I had many hours of pleasure finding old books as Christmas Gifts. I liked the fact that this book although not about Australian Aboriginals was written just befor Bob Randle was taken from his mother & their land, I hope it complements Bobs Book by giving a Authoritarian viewpoint although American Baced. Sorry if its Borring ...'. The book referred to is 'Songman: the Story of an Aboriginal Elder of Uluru'. The author was Robert James 'Bob' Randall (circa 1934 - 12 May 2015), Indigenous elder, 'singer and community leader. He was a member of the Stolen Generations and became an elder of the Yankunytjatjara people from Central Australia. He was the 1999 NAIDOC Person of the Year.
