Was Mounted Constable William Willshire really the cold-blooded killer of thousands of Aboriginal people in Central Australia, or was he the first man to write a love poem to an Aboriginal woman? Or was he both? This book goes beyond the stereotypes to answer this and other questions on Central Australia history.
Peter Vallee explored the period 1877-1891 in central Australia. His particular focus is on Hermannsburg Lutheran Mission, Boggy Waters police camp and Tempe Downs station to the west and south-west of Alice Springs. The traditional lands of the Western Arrarnta people.
