    'A beautifully illustrated account of the life of Magdalene Williams of the Nyul Nyul people. Raised in the confines of Beagle Bay mission in the Kimberley, she was nevertheless exposed to her traditional culture through her Elders. Magdalene's account of the coming of the missionaries, and the destruction of Law and culture is interwoven with the richness and diversity of her Nyul Nyul stories.' (Source: Publisher's website)
