Draft typescript article written by Richard Fotheringham for The Australian Literary Review which was published with the title 'Inside the killing fields of Queensland' on October 6, 2010, pp. 12-13. This article was written after the discovery of a memoir by Thomas Davis, father of Arthur Hoey Davis (aka "Steele Rudd"), which discussed massacres of Australian Aborigines in his time of working in Queensland in the 1800s. Fotheringham suggested the name of the manuscript.
