Description

Four wonderful traditional teaching stories of the Wongutha people are collected together here for the first time: *Barn Barn Barlala *The Kangaroos Who Wanted to be People *How Crows Became Black *Why the Emu Can't Fly First published as individual titles in 1992, these stories were seen as ground-breaking publications, presenting traditional Indigenous stories in a bi-lingual text. Sales of the individual titles now exceed 26,000 copies each. Updated with a vibrant new design, the stories are still as fresh and appealing as ever. The collected work contains a map, explanatory note and a simple pronunciation guide for the Wongutha words used in the text.
