It is contended that the chosen texts reveal layers of meaning with respect to three sets of relationships. First, relationships between Indigenous peoples and the earth; second, relationships in frontier Australia; and third, the relationships in the process of being formed between Indigenous and non- Indigenous peoples in a changing Australia.
