    I did not expect much and received even less from the reading. During 20+ years of study and interviews, I knew that required removal of clothing is not a usual interacting with whites for Australian Aboriginals. The narrative passage about this clothing event is false, according to exposes of this work. However, the sequel volume by the same author contains more information that is relevant and is a historical fiction rather than a fantasy. It is rumored that the first book was written to enhance sales of Mellaleuca. You be the judge.
