Abstract

An examination of the critical dystopian strategies employed in Allan Baillie's, 'Secrets of Walden Rising', to weaken some of the utopian national mythologies of white settler Australia is presented. This book reflects concerns about invasion and dispossession of indigenous peoples and about white settlers claiming rightful occupation of the land.
