One of a limited edition of 500 copies from a small but active Western Australian publishing house. Edward Clarkson was only twenty-one when he was speared to death by Aborigines. Now Hugh Morison uses this tragic event as the basis to build a narrative following the clash of cultures, Aboriginal and European, in the early days of the Western Australian colony. With compassion and empathy, he identifies the grievances of both cultures, and the helplessness of the original inhabitants to guard themselves against the invaders.
