This book "brings together testomonies from all sides of the history of Indigenous child separation in Australia. The book includes the voices of children who were taken from their families, adults who cared for them in institutions and Missions, families who took them into their homes and government officers who enacted official policies. Hundreds of individuals told their stories to the National Library of Australia's 'Bringing Them Home' Oral History Project - their words propel this history from start to finish. Editors Dorren Mellor and Anna Haebich have drawn together a diverse group of expert writers, whose words are interwoven with artworks and poetry by Indigenous artists, many of whom are interviewees for the Project. The audio CD brings the voices of the interviewees to life. 'Many voices' presents a spoken history that remains as compelling as the moment these events occurred. In their genorosity and courage, its contributors have created an invalubale gift to all Australians." Inside flap of cover
