My Country My Life My Words

A York Festival Anthology  

In this extraordinary collection, respected Barladong Noongar women Dr Marion Kickett and Tracey Kickett bring together first-person stories from First Nations peoples living in Western Australia. In some cases for the first time, Marion and Tracey tell their own stories; their close and extended family tell theirs; friends old and new tell theirs. There are men and women, children and elders, from all walks of life. Each has a tale to tell: about their childhoods, about their relationships, about their joys and their struggles. All share a unique connection to Country. And to each other. This is the authentic Australia, sung by the people who know it best.  

Leschenault Press acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which York Festival takes place, the Barladong Noongar people, and pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
