    'The Legends of Moonie Jarl is a collection of twelve traditional stories of the Butchulla/Badtjala people from Fraser Island and the adjacent mainland around Hervey Bay in Queensland. The Moonie Jarl of the title refers to the Butchulla/Badtjala elder responsible for passing traditional knowledge through generations of those people. Each story in this collection is incorporated into one of nine story-maps, supported by explanatory keys opposite each full-page illustration.'
