"Terrible Hard Biscuits introduces the main themes in the history of Aboriginal Australia: the complexity of Aboriginal-European relations since 1788; how Aboriginal identity and cultures survived invasion, dispossession and dislocation; how indigenous Australians have survived to take their place in today's society." "Each essay in Terrible Hard Biscuits has been chosen for the clarity of its writing and for its depth of understanding. The Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal authors range across Australia's post-invasion history and their accounts focus on the more traditionally oriented communities in remote areas as well as on urban and fringe dwellers."--BOOK JACKET.
