This extraordinary book explores the feelings of non-Aboriginal Australians as they articulate their sense of belonging to the land. Peter Read asks the pivotal questions: What is the meaning of places important to non-Aboriginal Australians from which the Indigenous people have already been dispossessed? How are contemporary Australians thinking through the problem of knowing that their places of attachment are also the places that Aboriginals loved--and lost? And are the sites of all our deep affections to be contested, articulated, shared, foregone or possessed absolutely?
