Book Review - 'Australia's Muslim Cameleers' Pioneers of the Inland 1860's - 1930's

with terms

Written by Philip Jones & Anna Kenny, I came across this book by chance in a second hand book shop in Strathalbyn.
A companion publication to the 'Australia's Muslim Cameleers' exhibition in the South Australian Museum it is a way for others to discover this much unreported aspect of our countries history.
Based around historical records, artefacts and the memories of decendants it provides a sense of the contribution made by these people and how they maintained their faith and their links to their culture in a remote and strange land for them.
A book to be bought or borrowed, read, then reflected upon.
