    [synopsis] => In The Legacy of Douglas Grant, John Ramsland vividly re-creates the famous Aborigine's life - now lost in the mists of history. Douglas was born to Indigenous parents and, as an infant, was the sole survivor of a cruel massacre in northern Queensland. As an adult, he was a charismatic speaker on Aboriginal rights, but spoke with a distinct Scottish burr. Why was this so?

He was rescued by a kindly Scottish immigrant and brought up and well educated in the Scottish way in Sydney's leafy suburb of Annandale.

Highly successful at school, he became a leading engineering draftsman at Mort's Dock Company in Balmain and, later, a woolclasser at 'Belltrees' station near Scone in the Hunter Valley of NSW.

With friends from 'Belltrees', he joined the 1st AIF. His dangerous encounters on the Western Front and as a prisoner-of-war in Germany are pieced together by the author from many fragments.

Douglas bravely faced unpleasant racism in post-war Australia, but never lost his keen sense of humour and scholarly interests.
