"The reminiscences of Tom Petrie concerning early Queensland, first appeared in the "Queenslander" in the form of articles, many of which referred to the Aboriginal People in those days. These articles were then recorded and published by his daughter, Constance Campbell Petrie, in 1904. This book also provides a brief sketch of the early days of the colony of Queensland from 1837, through the eyes of Tom Petrie. He was considered an authority on the Aboriginal People and in this book there is a wide range of interesting and important information about them, including some vocab words."--P.  of container.
