Native Tribes of South-East Australia

Published in 1904, this book by anthropologist Alfred William Howitt is based on 40 years work which commenced with explorations in Central Australia. It is still considered an important work for understanding the cultures of indigenous peoples today.

"By far the greater part of the materials for this work was collected and recorded before 1889. Since then the native tribes have more or less died, and in the older settlements of South-East Australia the tribal remnants have now almost lost the knowledge of the beliefs and customs of their fathers.
