Jackson's Track : Memoir of a Dreamtime Place Reviews
I really loved this autobiography - partly because I've been to these places and know, albeit superficially, the forests he lived in and loved. But more than that, his description of his logging work and his relationships with the Aboriginal families he worked with and married into, is disarmingly honest and highly evocative. It really shed new light for me on the era (1930s-1960s country Victoria), on the early loggers and their respect for the forest, and on the Aboriginal people of the stolen generations and the way they lived both when undisturbed by the authorities and once the powers-that-be decided to intervene in their lives and in the forest.
Amazing!! Get this yarn into ya! Stories from non-indigenous man who lived in the indigenous community of Jacksons Track just outside of Drouin from the 40's to the 60's when there were still tall old growth forests to chop down - well Daryl still lives there...oh and then read Jacksons Track revisited which fleshes out Daryls story with some indigenous perspectives which as you can imagine are ENLIGHTENING.
A great book written from the heart. Deals with interracial marriages and the social life in Gippsland, Victoria during the post war period late 1940's to 1960's.
Very interesting story of life in Australia among the Black Fellas and White Fellas in the 20th Century. Good read.
I loved it. It has prompted me to go ask the elders in my family lots of questions about their work in the old timber mills.
If only there had been more people like Daryl Tonkin! A great yarn, autobiography and history of a part of Gippsland not far from where I live and work.
Very interesting memoir of a place and time I would probably never have had any information about had I not found this book on a sale table in Little River, New Zealand this fall.
Wonderful book. An important but challenging part of Australia's history captured and told through the relationship between a white Australian make and his Aboriginal wife. Set in Gippsland Victoria I appreciated the insight into the history of my state.
I read this because my Australian friend suggested it to prepare for a trip to Oz. It really did give me a good feeling of Australian history and Aboriginal history. Many references to places, people, and interesting tales. Excellent!
