'Since these stories were first recorded, many of the storytellers have passed away. The eight books in this series fill an important role in passing on Aboriginal culture and Dreaming stories to future generations. This, and the need to improve literacy, has been and continues to be a major concern for the storytellers, and for Aboriginal people across Australia. This series contains names and photos of people who may have passed away. Please use [these books] with care.' (Lining pages)
