For white Australia's bicentenary in 1988, Aboriginal people took the defiant slogan: We have survived!
No nation proves this better than the Bundjalung caught between the penal settlements of Port Macquarie and Moreton Bay, invaded by loggers, farmers, developers and tourists, their culture endures and even flourishes.
This book tells their inspiring story, the how and why of survival.
