About the Author

Sally Morgan was born in Perth, Western Australia in 1951. She is a full-time painter and writer. For as long as she can remember Sally wanted to paint and write. However, at school she was discouraged from expressing herself through her art because her teachers failed to see the promise in her individual style. It was not until she researched her family history and discovered her Aboriginal identity that she found meaning in her images, and gained the confidence to pick up her paints again. Both her books and her paintings and screenprints have earned awards and wide-spread popularity.

Reviews

"A triumphant story that makes you glad it's been told." --Times on Sunday

"A book for everyone: a book with the form and texture of a novel and the complexity and pace of a mystery not solved until the final pages. It is wonderfully entertaining." --New York Times Book Review
"Sad and wise and funny . . . unbelievably and unexpectedly moving, Sally Morgan's love for her own spiritual and racial roots and her struggle to uncover them reveals a new Australia (the old) and a new way to embrace the elders and the young of all our peoples, wherever (and whoever) they might be. A book with heart." --Alice Walker, author, The Color Purple
"Funny and sad and very real: a satisfying and absorbing book, a unique record." --Pittburgh Press
"A moving and quite remarkable account of personal discovery." --Sydney Morning Herald
"One of the most significant milestones in Aboriginal literature." --Australian Magazine
