'Written by Aboriginal students at Bega TAFE, and illustrated by Aboriginal children from Eden Public School, this delightful book tells the story of Ninima, his wife Mina and their children and the rhythms of their traditional life on the south coast of NSW. Kinship, landscape and cultural knowledge are gently explored, providing an excellent resource for exploring Indigenous and environmental issues.' (Source: Publisher's website)
