The Passing of the Aborigines: A Lifetime Spent Among the Natives of Australiaby Daisy Bates
The race on the fringe of the continent has been there about a hundred years, and stands for Civilization; the race in the interior has
On the fringe of the vast island continent of Australia live a few millions of white people; in the vast desert regions far from the coast live a few thousands of black aboriginals, the remnant of the first inhabitants of Australia.
The race on the fringe of the continent has been there about a hundred years, and stands for Civilization; the race in the interior has been there no man knows how long, and stands for Barbarism.
Between them a woman has lived in a little white tent for more than twenty years,
watching over these people for the sake of the Flag, a woman alone, the solitary spectator of a vanishing race. She is Daisy Bates, one of the least known and one of the most romantic figures in the British Empire.
