Description

The autobiography, as told to Douglas Lockwood, of Waipuldanya, a full blood Aboriginal of the Alawa tribe at Roper River in Australia's Northern Territory. In his youth, Waipuldanya was taught to track and hunt wild animals, to live off the land and to provide for his family with the aid only of his spears and woomeras. This is the gripping story of his boyhood and youth, and how he trained as a skilled medical assistant, to become a citizen of both the Aboriginal and whitefella worlds.
