When Ruby Langford Ginibi was eight years old her father collected his daughters from the Box Ridge mission and drove them to safety, out of reach of the white authorities and the policy of removing Aboriginal children from their families. Today an established author and Aboriginal activist, she travels back to her home in Bundjalung country, to trace and record the history of her community, her roots. The reader is taken aboard on the journey home, down the backroads of northern New South Wales into the homes and conversations of cousins, aunties and tribal elders. The experience is direct and the feelings shared. Ruby Langford Ginibi writes with the humour, exuberance and unbending truth for which her first book, Don't Take Your Love to Town, is touted.

I liked that she wrote the book to tell the story by writing how other relatives told her the story of her family. 閱讀評論全文

關於作者 (1994)

Ruby Langford Ginibi, born in 1934 on Box Ridge mission Coraki, is a member of the Bundjalung people. She grew up in Bonalbo and later Casino, New South Wales. Her autobiographies Don?t Take Your Love to Town (1988) and Real Deadly(1992) describe her life in the bush and later in Sydney raising a family of nine children. Recognised as a spokesperson, educator and author of Koori culture, she travels and lectures in Australia and abroad, and her essays are widely published. Her tribal name "Ginibi" (black swan) was given to her in 1990 by her aunt, Eileen Morgan, a tribal elder of Box Ridge mission. She returned to Bundjalung country to re-establish connections with her family, community and land she left as a child. My Bundjalung Peopleis an account of her journey home, and was published by UQP in 1994.
