Ill. by Tori-Jay Mordey. Magabala Books, 2013. ISBN 9781921248863.
I read this book from a teaching point of view, and found it useful for comparing Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal cultures. For example: attitudes towards conservation and drought, interpretation of dreams, beliefs. It could be used for some topics in Aboriginal studies in the middle primary, such as the traditional use of resources and the naming of children and places. I think it would also be good for use in discussions about relationships, such as what causes good friends/family to become estranged and sometime enemies.
