Their combined memories, experiences and aspirations cover the entire twentieth century." "The first family, Pearl McKenzie, Pauline Coulthard and Charlene Tree, are a mother, daughter and granddaughter of the Adnyamathanha people of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia. The second family consists of Bernie Sound, her niece Valerie Bourne and Valerie's daughter, Brandi McLeod - Sechelt women from British Columbia, Canada." "The narratives are in their own words, speaking directly to the reader and allowing analysis and interpretation at multiple levels. They are prefaced by a brief history of the two peoples and set between a methodological Foreword and a summative Afterword by Gillian Weiss."--Jacket." ;
