Summary
Exploration of how the legal system was exported in a number of cases in the northern districts of Queensland, in the mid 1800s, which rested upon the testimony of a young Aboriginal boy Ralph William Barrow, who witnessed an attack on a station when he was 10 years old, and Barrow's experience as a witness and how his personal life story made him susceptible to public pressures; includes our settler colonial pressures operated to manipulate law officers, courts and witnesses to gain desired settler outcomes; treatment of Ralph Barrow as a witness; trial of Mickie and Dundalli
