AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The publication of this book of short stories by Tasmania's two best known Aboriginal writers, Karen Brown and Jim Everette, has very simple purposes. It is a book written, illustrated and produced by aborigines, mainly for Aborigines. The main purpose of the book is to show Aboriginal children just how enjoyable storytelling can be when it is done properly; when it is done by Aborigines who have something important to say. Although this small publication will not bring the public acclaim which some mainland Aborigines have achieved with their writing in the last few years, these stories clearly show that Tasmanian Aboriginal writing is amongst the best in the country.'
