In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
At the end of the nineteenth century and in the early twentieth, John J. Cary was writing about Australia’s First Peoples. His great contribution was documenting and reporting the languages and customs of Aboriginal people in Western Victoria at the time of the arrival of Europeans. He was the first to publish the surviving linguistic records of the Wathawurrung and Gulidjan tribes.
Cary corresponded with university professors, learned societies and other amateur observers who recorded everyday phenomena. He published some of his work in long articles in Australia’s second-oldest newspaper, the Geelong Advertiser, and in the journal The Geelong Naturalist. Much of his
work was, though, unpublished.
This book is both a biography of Cary and a picture of the times and cultures about which he wrote.
