MY NATIVES AND I

$38.00

"There is in the life of Daisy Bates something of the spirit of service that moved Florence Nightingale, and something of the spirit of sacrifice that filled the heart of Father Damien. She would not put it so, for she has loved her life and made a joy of her labour but it is right that tribute should be paid. She went out to her Aborigines  in the first years of this century. They had never known anyone like her. They named her Kabbarli, grandmother. They  would come to her with the confidence of a child in its mother, yet like creatures from another world than ours. To us she is Daisy Bates, Commander of the Order of the British Empire, the most remarkable woman in Australia. To them she is the magical Kabbarli whose word is love and law.”
