Notes

  • For children; Daily life descriptions, future aspirations; biographical information; childrens book.
  • Dedication: This book is dedicated to three great women of Walgett who supported all the schools and teachers; who looked after and loved all the children; who watched over all the people in Walgett to see that justice was done and everybody played fairly. Where tucker or love was shared out by them, nobody missed out. They possessed fierce determination and were always ready to fight for what they believed was right. For these three powerful, caring and dedicated women, this book was compiled. [The dedication is followed by biographical notes for Muriel Dennis, Pauline Dennis and Ivy Green.]

Works about this Work

[Review Essay] Growing up Walgett Joy Kinslow-Harris , 1991 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Aboriginal Studies , no. 1 1991; (p. 85-86)

'Growing Up Walgett is easy to read, with just over 85 pages of large print. It is a book which grew out of students' letters to their non-Aboriginal teacher, Cilka Zagar, to combat her boredom during the long daily bus ride home from school. A reader's interest is piqued by the colourful cover illustration of scenes of Walgett and by the photographs of people interspersed in the 35 page Foreword and Introduction. Interest continues to be drawn by the characters of the lead-in photographs of the 20 teenagers and young adults whose personal statements make up the remaining 54 page body of the book. There is no disappointment as the reader browses on, for the prose of the pieces lives up to the presentation.'  (Introduction)
