Abstract

[Extract] Hoff has compiled a history of the Bundjalung people since European settlement which is richly annotated with firsthand accounts from early observers and illustrated with historical photos. Her history is far from objective with a liberal infusion of her own interpretations of what the Aboriginal characters in early cross-cultural encounters might have been thinking or feeling. For example 'The warriors were probably pleased to see them gone … They were disturbed and curious about the large horned animals' (p. 36).
