What is it like to grow up Aboriginal in Australia? This groundbreaking anthology, compiled by award-winning author Anita Heiss, attempts to showcase as many diverse voices and experiences as possible to answer that question. Accounts from well-known names sit alongside newly discovered voices of all ages, with stories spanning coastal and desert regions, cities and remote communities. All reveal, to some degree, the impacts of invasion and colonisation - on language, on country, on ways of life and on how people are treated daily in the community, the education system, the workplace and friendship groups. Together they enlighten, inspire and educate us about the lives of Aboriginal people in Australia today.
