AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In 1988, Don’t Take Your Love to Town became the first of five autobiographies that Ruby Langford Ginibi would have published during her almost thirty-year career as a writer, Aboriginal historian, activist and lecturer. Indeed it was this first book, her life story covering five generations of familial bonds, written in what would become her trademark conversational style, which would have a historic impression on Indigenous literature in Australia. Don’t Take Your Love to Town proved the catalyst for Langford Ginibi achieving recognition as one of Australia’s premier storytellers of urban and rural Indigenous life during the last half century.'
