Summary
Analysis of the changing attitudes and values towards the Northern Territory as represented in childrens literature; earliest period stressed accommodating aspects of both landscape and Aboriginal race relations; 1920s and 1930s emphasised masculine conquest of the land and Aborigines; 1930s and 1940s stressed the Northern Territory as source of wealth; 1950s attempted to incorporate the Aboriginal experience and promote a sense of Aboriginal culture within the non-Aboriginal context which led to the portrayal of Aborigines as primitive but spiritual beings
