MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. (Discolouration to cover is actually part of the design) 341 pages During the life of the Port Phillip Aboriginal Protectorate from 1839 until late 1849 some 35 children were associated with the Protectorate. In this work we hear the voice of Protectorate children - the authors bring them out of the shadows of their fathers and allow them to appear as influential actors in their own right, with their own motivations, goals, ideas, and relationships with Aboriginal people. Detailed biographical entries, where possible, are included on every Protectorate child and on their spouses. For the first time, the reminiscences of William Jackson Thomas and Albert Le SouĂ«f are published in their entirety ID290556
