Jacqueline Wright points to a range of biographies of Aboriginal people that were overlooked by Nicholas Rothwell in his review of Liam Campbell's Darby : One Hundred Years of Life in a Changing Culture. Rothwell claimed that Campbell's book is 'one of one of the first comprehensive attempts at writing the biography of a traditional Aboriginal man'; Wright disputes this claim.
