From the publisher’s synopsis: The importance of acknowledgement of Australian Aboriginal custodianship of country lies at the heart of this evocative text. Aunty Joy Murphy, a respected elder of the Wurundjeri People, shares her people’s heritage with her readers. Lisa Kennedy’s stunning artwork is a fitting accompaniment to these powerful words. This book invites respect for the traditions of Aboriginal people. Welcome to Country.
