An extraordinary illustrated history told from the indigenous perspective and created through a series of workshops, extensive research and community consultation.

'Maralinga - the Anangu Story is our story. We have told it for our children, our grandchildren and their children. We have told it for you.'

In words and pictures Yalata and Oak Valley community members, with author Christobel Mattingley, describe what happened in the Maralinga Tjarutja lands of South Australia before the bombs and after.

About The Author

Yalata and Oak Valley Communities:
Mima Smart writes: 'Last year Alice Cox, Margaret May, Pansy Woods, Mabel Queama, Marjorie Sandimar, Yvonne Edwards, Mima Smart, Janet May worked as storytellers or translators with Christobel Mattingley to tell the story of what happened at Maralinga. Our story is a very important story that needs to be heard by children and adults across our country. Christobel has added a lot of other stories and information to make a very strong story. We have continued working on the book this year and have just finished another workshop to draw pictures that help tell our story. Dora Queama, Hilda Moodoo, Audra Bridley and Noelene Bridley have helped some of the older ladies to do the paintings.' Christobel Mattingley is the award-winning author of over 40 books, including for Allen + Unwin, Battle Order 204 and Chelonia Green, Champion of Turtles.
