The determination of senior Nyikina lawman, John Watson, to present an Aboriginal perspective has produced personal stories that show how these hard-working men adapted to station life and why they became the backbone of the pastoral industry in northern Western Australia. Mustering and droving in open country for several months a year, the stockmen freely travelled through their traditional country and were able to maintain law and culture and land management practices.
