Summary

A groundbreaking presentation, in a revised edition, of Aboriginal Australian storytelling as it actually sounds; these stories provide a fascinating picture of the life of the people of the west Kimberley after colonisation.

Paddy Roe was a legendary figure in the revival and maintenance of law and culture in the Broome area in the mid-20th century. In this book he continues and revitalises one of the great literary traditions of Australia.

Stephen Muecke is a leading Australian academic whose work has encompassed a number of disciplines in the humanities. With Paddy Roe, Muecke is co-writer of the prize-winning Reading the Country.

Recommended to all who are interested in how Aboriginal identity came to be what it is, and as a sensitive evocation of Aboriginality as it was.
