Summary
"This thesis is focused on the life history of Alexander Donald Ross, a Kaytetye senior man, of both Kaytetye and European ancestry, ... the thesis employs Don Ross's narratives of his childhood, relationships and working life, which were compiled from interviews and conversations with a series of people (including the author of this thesis) to explore aspects of the period and region in which he lived. Relevant archival and other historical material are also employed as part of this investigation of the 'life and times' of Don Ross. Two significant aspects of Don Ross's life, his skill as a stockman, and his ambiguous legal and social status as a man of both European and Kaytetye parentage, and the concomitant limits and freedoms his classification as 'half-caste' awarded him during different decades of the 20th-century ... it addresses the complex and contested historical, historiographical, literary, cultural and cross-cultural and personal processes of receiving, researching, compiling and narrating, from another time and place, and through the multifaceted lenses of memory and history, another person's life history; the implications and responsibilities of toying someone else's story."
