Product description

Judith Wright is perhaps Australia's best known poet, and she has also published numerous essays, children's books and documentary histories. When her work for he Aboriginal Treaty Committee came to an end in 1985 with the publication of "We Call for a Treaty", Judith Wright along with other committee members, made a promise to do what she could to keep the issue of justice for Aboriginal people alive. In the interim she has continued her activities in conservation and environmental organisations. "Born of the Conquerors" is a further attempt to fulfil her promise to aboriginal people and a message to us all about our need to care for the land. This collection brings together for the first time twenty-one essays, previously published in a wide variety of journals and other publications. They range from the autobiographical to political comment to literary criticism, but Judith Wright's strong concerns for the survival of Aboriginal culture and the environment run through them all.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
