First published in 1934 by Angus and Robertson Ltd. in Sydney (at 6 shillings a copy) and again in 1944 by Consolidated Press Ltd., 'Buffaloes' struck a chord with Australia's metropolitans. Its story of adventure, mateship and freedom massaged the escapist yearnings of a society torn by economic depression and total war, and stirred a persistent curiosity and anxiety about Australia's "unknown North."||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Carl Warburton's Buffaloes: Adventures in Arnhem Land, p. vii-xxiii||Publisher:||Gecko Books||Place of Publication:||Marleston||ISBN:||0977511413||Field of Research (FOR):||210303 Australian History (excl Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History)||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an40312766||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 199
