Tjarany Roughtail contains eight dreamtime stories, all significant to the history of the Kukatja people of Western Australia's remote Kimberley Region. Each story is complemented by beautiful artworks painted by Aboriginal artist Lucille Gill that visually explain each story using traditional dot paintings. Told in English and Kukatja, the book includes magnificent paintings, maps, kinship diagrams, exercises and language notes.

About the Author

Author Gracie Greene and illustrator Lucille Gill grew up in Balgo, a remote Aboriginal community in the Kimberely region of Western Australia. Gracie told these stories to school teacher Joe Tramacchi, who helped translate them to English. Gracie and Lucille are traditional artists whose paintings and sculptures have appeared in exhibitions throughout Australia and internationally.
