DINGO THE STORY OF OUR MOB

$30.00

"I think I have learnt more about Aboriginal society than in anything else I've heard or read for a long time." ("The Sydney Morning Herald"). "A book that bites deep into our consciousness". ("The Sydney Morning Herald"). "The Dingo" family history follows the formula of any self-respecting soap opera. It's full of life, death, laughter, violence, struggle, children, poverty, alcohol, and surprisingly after all that, success. It is the stuff of overblown fiction. It is also a history shared with every other Aboriginal family, a history still unknown to many Australians. "Dingo" makes that incredible story truly accessible to non-Aboriginal Australians. Told through the eyes of Ernie Dingo's wife, Sally, it comes alive. It is also Sally's story. Emerging from her white middle-class existence in a sleepy Tasmanian town, Sally marries a charismatic actor and the turbulent Dingo tribe. She finds much to love and much to cry about. With the unique perspective of a white woman adopted by an Aboriginal family who is able to write about her experiences with great skill and warmth, "Dingo" is a story to be treasured.
