Summary

"How do you live in a landscape that no longer belongs to you? Denis Byrne and Maria Nugent show how Aboriginal people in NSW 'possess' their local landscapes by imprinting them with their life stories, histories, memories and emotions. In their minds and in their daily conversations they construct maps that are different from, but just as real as , the official maps produced by government and by tourism bodies"--back cover.

Notes

"The project began in mid-1999 when the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (now the Department of Environment and Conservation, NSW), with funding assistance from the NSW Heritage Council, began working with the cultural heritage staff of the Purfleet-Taree and the Forster Local Aboriginal Land Councils to record the post-contact heritage of their communities"--p. 1.
