Summary Based on a popular Australian song that tells of the time when it was illegal for whites and Aborigines to marry, and how such relationships were hidden by Aboriginal women dressing as boys. This book is a tribute to Aboriginal stockwomen, in the hope that one day their huge contribution to the Australian pastoral industry might be recognized.
