Paddy Cahill of Oenpelli is the story of a unique twentieth-century Territorian. At times a racehorse owner and jockey, a buffalo-hunter and pastoralist, Paddy Cahills contribution to Northern Territory life also includes farming on his Oenpelli property. Here he experimented in growing a range of fruit and vegetables while employing Aboriginal workers, farming and helping run the property. A colourful writer, his letters to Baldwin Spencer, from which Spencer drew much information for his own now-famous writings, form the basis for this examination of a rugged frontiersman, including his relationship with the Northern Territory Aboriginal peoples; their languages and culture.
