Short biography
'Bill Rosser was a celebrated Aboriginal writer, historian and poet. He grew up in Queensland. He left school at 11, unable to read or write, and educated himself with the aid of a dictionary. He travelled extensively and settled on Palm Island, where he wrote his first book (This is Palm Island, AIAS, 1978). He has published a large number of books and won many awards, including the Australian Human Rights Award, both the Queensland and New South Wales Premier's Awards and the RAKA award for Indigenous creators. Bill passed away in May 2002. It was his ambition to share the beliefs and philosophies of Aboriginal people with all people, so they are better understood.'
