What is it like to grow up Aboriginal in Australia? This anthology, compiled by award-winning author Anita Heiss, showcases many diverse voices, experiences and stories in order to answer that question. Accounts from well-known authors and high-profile identities sit alongside those from newly discovered writers of all ages. All of the contributors speak from the heart - sometimes calling for empathy, oftentimes challenging stereotypes, always demanding respect.

It’s writing like this that helps me understand an upbringing and perspective so different from my own.

Thank you Dr Heiss for collecting these stories and making them available to hear. Thank you for having the courage to tell your story for me to hear.
