Australian Legendary Tales: Weedah the Mocking Bird

Language:
English
Genres:
Childrens Fiction, Travel & Adventure

Catherine "Katie" Langloh Parker (1856 – 1940) was born at Australia and lived in New South Wales. She is well-known for her recording the folk stories of the Aboriginal people. Her collection was one of the first attempts of researching Aboriginal people's folk, beliefs and short stories of north-west New South Wales. She is best known by her books such as “Australian Legendary Tales”, “Tales of the Dreamtime”, “Wise Women of the Dreamtime” and other. The plot of this Australian legend narrates about a little bird that could make great tricks on the black fellows. In order to perform his object which seemed for a bird very awful he needed to built a number of grass nyunnoos to make them look as some one lived there, so his mission was already done. But it was only the beginning of his cruelty. He wanted to entice as many strange black fellows into his camp as he could at one time in order to kill them and gradually gain the whole county round for his own. Would he manage to fulfill that?
