Looking at the views and experiences of three generations of indigenous Australians, this autobiography unearths political and societal issues contained within Australia's indigenous culture. Sally Morgan travelled to her grandmother's birthplace, starting a search for information about her family. She uncovers that she is not white but Aborigine - information that was kept a secret because of the stigma of society. This moving account is a classic of Australian literature that finally frees the tongues of the author's mother and grandmother, allowing them to tell their own stories.

Sally Morgan

About the Author


Sally Morgan is one of Australia's best-known Aboriginal artists and writers. 

For as long as she can remember, Sally wanted to paint and write but at school she was discouraged from expressing herself through her art because her teachers failed to see the promise in her individual style. It was not until she researched her family history and discovered her Aboriginal identity that she found meaning in her images and gained the confidence to pick up her paints again. Sally’s widely-acclaimed first book, My Place, has sold over half a million copies in Australia. Sally is a Professor at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies at the University of Western Australia and lives in Perth with her three children.
