The scene is the magnificent Kimberley outback during the late nineteenth century, and the last stage of Australia's invasion is about to be played out in the lands of the Bunuba people. Leases are marked on a map covering huge areas and vast herds of cattle and sheep spread out across Aboriginal country. Amidst the chaos and turmoil that ensues, extraordinary and sometimes contradictory relationships develop.

    Comments about Jandamarra and the Bunuba Resistance:

    From the first page I found this book to consume me.
    I could not put it down and finished it in 2 days and I am not a reader. A very interesting account of the white take over of the Tribal Aboriginal Lands in the Kimberlys for sheep & beef cattle Stations. I would recommend all people to read this book especially young Australians. It will give them a different outlook on native Australians and the treatment they received at the hands of the Settlers.
