Pemulwuy: The Rainbow Warrior
by Eric Willmot

PEMULWUY, the Rainbow Warrior, led his people in the grim struggle against the British invaders from 1788 until his death in 1802.
At the time, the British not only tried to destroy him and his people, but also attempted to obliterate evidence of his very existence.
In this his first novel, Eric Willmot, a prominent member of the Australian Aboriginal community, reveals the dark story of those early years of conflict and tells the story of the man who became the first Australian patriot.

Review by Birrin Hooper (Amazon)
"This is arguably the most important book in Australian history. It is based around the Aboriginal resistance in Sydney encountered by the first fleet. Until this was published resistance stories were ommitted from Australian history. After reading this 'novel' my whole outlook on Australia's history changed. I have since researched Pemulwuy and the Eora resistance and every major event in this book actually happened, it is only a 'novel' because some of the major characters were constructed to make this a more personal story.
This book is written somewhat differently and after talking about it with some friends (including some international students) they all say it's uniqueness is WIllmot's Aboriginal storyteller style which makes it easy to read. "

Hardback, first edition 1987 Weldons, 310pages, very good condition, a small stain mark on edge, light wear/tear in jacket
