Kate tells of the little-known history and culture of the Gypsies in Australia from the First Fleet to the present day. By drawing on the oral history of the Romani and the written word of the non-Gypsies, her cultural heritage and five years of recent itinerant research, she reveals how this maligned, landless, ethnic nation has brought the best of their culture to share with their neighbours.
Told in an easy style this book takes the reader into the realms of the unknown as they explore the Romani culture. From the First Fleet to the present day the Gypsies have impacted on Australian culture and society. Providing early links with our indigenous people. They also produced the first palatable Australin beer that did not go sour in the heat and the first native-born State Premier.
What ever your interest somewhere in the book there is information on the Romani and how they deal with the subject. Be it, the occult, traditional food, religion, dress, jewellery, wagons, weddings, funerals and much much more.
