Kathleentharndu Wanggangarli 2015 single work life story

'This collection of Kathleen’s stories illustrates her life in the Pilbara, from local plant life and familiar sights in the Hedland area, to a bush-tucker picnic at Gagurrga (Yule River). There is also a story about her home, Karlarra House.'

'Kathleen tells the stories in her traditional language Banyjima. Banyjima is a highly endangered Pilbara language which has been classified as part of the Ngayarda language family. Kathleen’s book is an important contribution to the documentation of Banyjima as well as an excellent learning resource for current and future Banyjima learners.' (Source: Publisher's website)
