Eddie's Country

Author(s): Simon Luckhurst

Crime and Justice | Anti-racism

Eddie Murray died in suspicious circumstances in a police cell in the NSW town of Wee Waa in 1981. He was twenty-one years old.

Eddie's Country chronicles Arthur and Leila Murrays experience and their 24 year fight to smash the barrier of inconsistencies that surround their sons death.

Biographer Simon Luckhurst records the Murray familys courage and details the betrayals, tragedies and heroism involved in their lives. Simon delves deep into the official inquiries and the 1980s Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody.

Eddie's Country is a powerful testament to the courage of Arthur and Leila Murray and to the many others who were prepared to fight for justice. It places the struggle and heartache of the Murray family into context as it examines the socio-economic conditions faced by Aboriginal people in rural NSW.
