'This is a beautiful book. ... Wakefield Press' overall design, high quality paper, appealing lay-out, plus the numerous, well-reproduced and integrated illustrations and attractive cover, make for an experience that is aesthetic as well as intellectual. This befits the topic: a study of artefacts and encounters on a variety of Australian frontiers. ... This book contains some finely realised prose and elegantly told stories ...' - Ann McGrath, Aboriginal History
