Book - Through foreign eyes : European perceptions of the Kurnai tribe of Gippsland

From the Collection of Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages 33 Saxon Street Brunswick Victoria

This book is the second of Gardner's 3 volume history on the Kurnai tribes. It studies the Kurnai through the diaries and letters of various European observers, including an explorer, squatters, government officials, Aboriginal protectors, missionaries and an anthropologist. There is also an account of one of the victims, a summary of Gardner's massacre thesis and an appendix on the 'white woman' affair. This book is considered the most professional production of the trilogy and was highly commended in the Caltex-Bendigo Advertiser Awards of 1988.
