Using the invader’s own words taken from diaries, official records and letters, Fred Cahir, an Associate Professor in Aboriginal history presents a challenging history of the colonial invader’s interactions and relations with the First Nation’s people in the Ballarat and Geelong region – the Wadawurrung. This provocative book is the first detailed account of the invasion of Wadawurrung Country from 1800 to 1870 by the ngamadjidj – the white strangers from the sea.
