A study examining the attempts at assimilation of Aborigines within the larger white society in Western Australia during the administration of A.O. Neville.
A thought provoking, well researched, accurate, well substantiated commentary on the treatment of Aborigines during A.O. Neville’s tenure as Chief Protector and later Commissioner for Native Affairs.
How such an upright, caring man could be so vilified is hard to understand. He clearly respected the Aborigines and wanted them to regain their self-respect and independence.
There have been biased reports, emotive language and general vituperation. A.O Neville has been depicted as a devil and the film ‘Rabbit Proof Fence,’ almost more than anything else has blackened his name. But, as the main real-life character said: “That was not my story.”
This book should be compulsory reading in all schools as a counter to the current study of this film. At last this is an accurate version of events and a true picture of a fine man.
