The End of the DancingThe massacre of a peaceful peopleIn this unique book, Geoffrey Blomfield has set out to tell the complete story of black-white relations in a small and manageable area the “Falls Country” around the headwaters of the Manning, Macleay and Hastings Rivers on the south eastern edge of the New England Tableland, in New South Wales, Australia. His local knowledge has enabled him to draw out from the descendants of white settlers and black victims a wealth of information about the early massacres in the district, which no passing historian or outsider could hope to match.Noted Australian Historian, Professor Russell Ward:- “This book should be read by every white Australian who possesses a heart and a head”American Authority on Australian writing and the Australian Aborigines, Professor John Joseph Healy:- “I find the mix of generosity, compassion and indignation that you have brought to what is a whole lifetimes reflective work to be Australian in the best, most democratic, moral way...what you say has the feel and the integrity that I associate with the best of Furphy and Lawson. I regard your gift of Baal Belbora to me as one of the nicest things that have come my way from Australia in the last twenty or so years.”
