    'From the islands, the coast, and the far harsh inland of northern Australia they cane, the young Aborigines who while training as teachers at Kormilda College in Darwin conceived and created this book of myths and legends of their own peoples.'

    'Depicted here in brilliant, glowing colours and lucidly simple in expression, these tales are part of the rich heritage of the Aboriginal peoples and one which all the young in heart are now privileged to share...'

    Djurgurba: Tales from the Spirit Time, written and illustrated wholly by Aborigines whose proud traditions it records, brings together myths and legends from widespriead areas and peoples. It is a happy and unique achievement.' (Source: The Publishers, title page verso)
