A record of the skirmishes on the white/aboriginal frontier, falling short of a guerrilla war but resulting in thousands of deaths on both sides. Rumors of massacres are systematically investigated. A map of early pastoral expansion in Queensland shows how the frontier expanded to the north and north west. The government incentives to conquer the aboriginals are outlined. The horrific role of the native (aboriginal) police from other States and tribes is summarized. Massacre sites in northern NSW, Queensland and Northern Territory are shown on modern maps for readers to check on sites near where they now live. The 1840 - 1860 improvement in western armaments are outlined, allowing easier conquest. Outlines of mention of similar attacks on the Great Plains of the USA, Africa and Argentina are mentioned.
