Summary

"Here - for the first time - is the life story of Edward Koiki Mabo, told largely in his own words. It covers his years as a boy on the island of Mer through to his struggle within the union cause and the black rights movment. This unusual story spans the years from his birth in 1936 to his untimely death in 1992, just months before the historic High Court decision which destroyed forever the concept of terra nullius."--BOOK COVER.
