Black White Red (Paperback)
David Bailes was born in Adelaide and later attended primary school in Darwin and then high school in Alice Springs. While living in Alice Springs, David listened to many stories about the pioneering days as remembered by older family members. In Adelaide, David completed an Arts degree at Adelaide University and teaching diploma at Murray Park Teachers College. In 2002, David's interest in the family history led to the discovery of the Aboriginal Bailes. David became very close to Billy Bailes, who was the senior member of their Aboriginal family. Billy's stories and knowledge inspired David to write the fascinating history of their family.
