This book draws together, in a single volume, most of the information about the massacres of Aboriginal people which has been recorded in books and journals. It also creates a broad-based level of awareness of the scale of the massacres of Aboriginal people so that this dimension of Australian history can become part of the Australian consciousness.

The massacres of Aboriginal people, painful and shameful as they are, should be as much a part of Australian history as the First Fleet, the explorers, the gold rushes and the bushrangers.

Inspired by Dee Brown's account of the decimation of the American Indians in 'Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee', this is a book of great emotional power. It is a sad comment on Australian historians, and particularly upon the way Europeans regarded Aboriginal people in the 19th Century, especially the scarcity of Aboriginal accounts of the massacres.
