Summary

Four wonderful traditional teaching stories of the Wongutha people are collected together here for the first time: Barn Barn Barlala, The Kangaroos Who Wanted to be People, How Crows Became Black, Why the Emu Can’t Fly.

First published as individual titles in 1992, these stories were ground-breaking publications, presenting traditional Aboriginal stories in a bi-lingual text.

Sales of the individual titles now exceed 26,000 copies each. Updated with a vibrant new design, the stories are still as fresh and appealing as ever. The collected work contains a map, explanatory note and a simple pronunciation guide for the Wongutha words used in the text.
