Carolyn Landon

Carolyn Landon co-authored with Daryl Tonkin her best known book, Jackson’s Track, Memoir of a Dreamtime Place. Since then she completed a Masters Degree with the School of Historical Studies at Monash (Clayton) in Biography and Life Writing in order to solidify her skills as an oral historian. The result was her book, Jackson’s Track Revisited which was an examination of differing viewpoints of one story of Aboriginal assimilation using oral testimony and archival records. Cups with No Handles; memoir of a grassroots activist, a biography of Bette Boyanton whom Joan Kirner calls “one of the warriors”, came out in 2008.

Carolyn’s current work, BLACK SWAN: A KOORI WOMAN’S LIFE is the biography of Eileen Harrison, Aboriginal artist from Gippsland.
