There's one mention of climbing a tree or ridge to see Araps in the distance. A cold time of the year to be lost

I remember watching a film they made about these kids when I was at school. Wonder if you can still get hold of it. Produced in the early 70s I think.

Lost, A True Tale from the Bush by Stephanie Owen Reeder - found it in the library today. The last bit of the book highlights the abilities of the aboriginal trackers - a mostly lost art. Interesting to note that Woorroral, the boss tracker, was a member of the aboriginal cricket team that toured England in 1868 (and was the first Aussie team to beat the Poms!!!).

Trivia-time eh?
Here is a totally unrelated bit for you, from back about that time...
Did you know that some of the Sioux Indians who took part* in the battle of Little Bighorn, ended up doing a tour in Australia as part of a reciprocal horse-skills combined circus type show, after they were invited to do so, by the first Australians to compete in a horse skills competition event in USA?
(*Approx 7 of the 30 or so who did the Australian tour I believe...)
~> Talk about lost arts! ... Interesting adaptability that within 10 years they were engaged in making a living out of it?
;-)
