AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Matutjara woman, Jessie Lennon, was born on a sheep station near Kingoonya in the 1920s. Aged six, she accompanied her father on a ceremonial journey with the Old People, as far west as Ooldea, in the time of Daisy Bates, and north to Coober Pedy, then a fledgling opal-mining settlement. Here, Jesse's stories are juxtaposed with historical photographs and information of the times, places and people in her life.' (Source: LibrariesAustralia)
