Little Eva at Moonlight Creek is the sequel to the anthology of Aboriginal song poems, The Honey-Ant Men's Love Song. It samples the literary traditions of four language groups...Yanyuwa songs depicting particular events such as the 1942 crash of the B-25 bomber Little Eva, Ngurlu songs from Broome, Wangkangurru songs with mixed themes and Yolngu songs about birds from the Wora and Liyagawumirr clans. Each song is presented in its original language and in translation. Introductions place songs within their cultural context with interpretations offered by singers. (Source: Publishers blurb)
