'Anscar McPhee is a Benedictine monk who spent 28 years living among the people of Kalumburu. In that time he became a loved and trusted friend of many of the old people, who shared their wonderful oral history with him. Inspired by these largely undocumented accounts of Kalumburu bush life, Anscar wove their wonderful tales and traditions into a magnificent story: that of Penda Gudje, a leader of supreme integrity and gifted in Aboriginal cultural ideals.
