The collaboration of Yolnu family and artists, writers and photographers has produced a beautifully engaging, informative and direct story of the people of Arnhem Land. Their history, beliefs, connection to country and language have been seamlessly incorporated into this stunning book. Laklak's story touches on every facet of complex and strong culture, its history since dreaming and its aspirations for the younger generation. Told in a warm, confidential and gentle style this book is a real treasure for readers of all ages. Highly recommended.
