Colliding Worlds: First Contact in the Western Desert 1932-1984


Colliding Worlds: First Contact in the Western Desert 1932–1984 shares with us the experiences and impact of the first encounters between the people of the Western Desert and non-Aboriginal people. These relatively recent encounters provide insight into the general relationship between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians, with implications for the identities of both.

We hear the firsthand accounts of the meetings and the impact on people's lives. These stories and the essays presented by historians Dick Kimber, John Kean and Jeremy Long, illuminate a pivotal moment in the history of a rapidly-changing Australia.
