Jimmy Governor: Blood on the Tracks

Maurie Garland

Jimmy Governor challenged the white man’s Aboriginal stereotype in 1900.  He was highly intelligent, better educated than many of his white contemporaries, personable, a hard worker, and was married to a white woman.

So how did Jimmy become a mass murderer?

Using meticulous research, Maurie Garland provides  a new analysis of the events that gripped Australia in 1900.
