Catherine (Katie) Langloh Parker (1 May 1856 - 27 March 1940) was a writer who lived in Northern New South Wales Australia in the late nineteenth century. She is best known for recording the stories of the Aboriginal people around her. Langloh Parker's early work with the Euahlayi Tribe provides the reader with a fascinating insight into Aborigine life in the early twentieth century. Saved by an Aboriginal as a child, her accounts of the Tribe provide them with a friendly representative amongst the European Settlers of Australia, in a period where they faced great persecution and disruption to their traditional of way of life. Her recordings contain the best known accounts of the Aboriginal people in North-West New South Wales. This book also contains the earliest written account of Byamee, the All-Father, casting doubt on the assertion that that the God was a construct of European missionaries. It is also a valuable historical insight into the daily life, folklore and culture of the Aborigines before they way of life disappeared forever under the cultural hegemony of Australian Colonialists. This new revised edition of her work also contains the original introduction by Andrew Lang, and has been updated to contain politically correct language and references appropriate to a modern audience.
