Summary
During the nineteenth century many European settlers, government officials and missionaries documented their obervations of the Indigenous people's of Victoria they were displacing. This selection of over 700 extracts from a wide variety of these sources provide glimpses into a rich and complex world. This reader is a convenient entry point into this disparate literature and will be of use to anyone with an interest in Victorian ethnography and history and of particular value to teachers, students and Aboriginal communities
