Summary The Aboginials is the fourth in the Faces of Australia Series of Songbooks, which create a truly Australian musical heritage. In this volume Ted Egan presents thirteen songs: White Man; The White Sea Eagle; Truganini; Teach the Blacks a Lesson; Bullocky's Joy and Jesus; Tjandamara; The Hungry Fighter; Brown Skin Baby; Namatjira; Alyandabu; Gurindji Blues; Poor Feller My Country; King Wally. Ted Egan is uniquely qualified to write the text and present the songs, which tell the tragic story of what has happened to Australia's Aboriginal people in the two hundred years since the first white settlers arrived in 1788. The massacres, the deceptions, the politics, the struggles to retain land and identity - all are covered perceptively and accurately.
