AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jirrbal Rainforest Dreamtime Stories are witty and wise moral fables from the tablelands of Northern Queensland. They are traditional, as told to young people for thousands of years, and as told to the author Maisie (Yarrcali) Barlow herself, when she was a child of the rainforest. The animal characters have been brought to life in breathtaking simplicity, full of lively personality and charm, by Michael (Boiyool) Anning. The last chapter tells about growing up in the rainforest country.' (Source: Back Cover)
