The Good Country: The Djadja Wurrung


A superbly researched, finely grained local history of the Djadja Wurrung people of Central Victoria.

A story of destruction, decimation and dispossession, this book explains how the Djadja Wurrung reached a co-existence with sympathetic protectors, pastoralists and gold diggers, showing how they were able to remain in their own country, at least for a time.

Drawing past and present together, Attwood relates the revival of the Djadja Wurrung in recent times as they have sought to become their own historians.
