About this title


"A Distant Field of Murder" tells the story of a frontier - south-western Victoria during the 1830s and 1840s. It describes how one culture, that of the original possessors of the land, responded to the catastrophe visited upon it by the white settlers. It reveals the complexity of the settlement process, the choices confronting the newcomers as they struggled to establish themselves. It expresses the dilemmas faced by the colonial administration attempting to maintain a fragile peace. Though a detailed examination of one region, "A Distant Field of Murder" explores an immense human drama, the consequences of which remain with us to this day. This book is intended for students and researchers in Australian history, Aboriginal studies and anthropology.
