What a wonderful book Growing Up Aboriginal Australia is.
Full disclosure, my amazing Mum wrote one of the stories featured.
You have a lot to answer for Ben. I shared this with my Mum, and they selected her story for the anthology. ??

It’s a touch sad to finally complete it. I’ve enjoyed flicking through and reading one or two of the stories from time to time at random.
This is apparently a sign of a good book.
Some of the accounts brought joy, truly brightening my day with appreciation. Others shared a more solemn account worthy of reflection.
I acknowledge the strength of all the authors putting their very personal stories to paper.
It made me think deeply about my own view of growing up Aboriginal in Australia.
For that I am grateful.
