Alice Springs, NT : Institute for Aboriginal Development, 1975. Series: A Pitjantjatjara Book, Book Seven. Quarto (260 x 205 mm), publisher’s cloth-backed printed wrappers (upper wrapper with previous owner’s name, and name of co-translator struck out, presumably by the publisher; spot of insect damage at head of spine); 42 pp. parallel text in Pitjantjatjara and English, with line-drawn illustrations by Ron Ansell throughout; some light foxing to margins, otherwise internally very clean.

This Pitjantjatjara reader takes the form of a traditional story that takes place on country.
