This book recognises the role buffalo played in bringing together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and pays tribute to the many individuals and groups, past and present, who have been involved with the industry and animal.
Filled with compelling, action-packed images taken over 30 years, “Nganabbarru, Buffalo” is not only an historic account of one of Australia’s most interesting industries but also places the animal in a contemporary context with its impact on the environment and potential to create new industries in the meat and dairy markets.
