Charters Towers is better known as a Gold town than an Indigenous town. WRITTEN TRUE, NOT GAMMON! A HISTORY OF ABORIGINAL CHARTERS TOWERS fills a gap in the story that is told about a town. This is a book that people of all ages should read to understand Australia's history. Award winning anthropologist Sally Babidge has collaborated with local elders Val Alberts and Patricia Dallachy to gather oral history and local family photographs. Combining these with archival research, they have produced an accessible account of Charters Towers' hidden Indigenous history.
