The Public Record Office Victoria and the National Archives of Australia have recently published Footprints: The Journey of Lucy and Percy Pepper, a valuable resource on Indigenous people relevant to senior secondary History and other disciplines. Footprints follows the lives of one Aboriginal 'half caste' family and provides an insight into their daily struggles. Their story is presented largely through transcripts of personal letters written by Percy and Lucy themselves in their own handwriting, as well as official letters written by public servants and other government documents.
