Description
Information
Although that northern part of the Continent of Australia which is called Capricornia was pioneered long after the southern parts, its unofficial early history was even more bloody than that of the others. One probable reason for this is that the pioneers had already had experience in subduing Aborigines in the South and hence were impatient of wasting time with people who knew they were determined to take no immigrants.

And so 'Capricornia' opens with a sweep as vast as the territory it covers. First published to controversy and acclaim in 1938, the novel brings to life a cast of memorable characters in an epic stretching fifty years.

In this edition, Aboriginal critic and writer Mudrooroo reassesses this classic novel of race relations in the introduction.
