- Begun as a catalogue of the collections of the National Museum of Australia, the 'ensemble of texts' grew into a fascinating account of a little-known aspect of Australian social history, surveying material from collections all over Australia.
- Each section of text is accompanied by apposite quotes from a huge variety of written records from sites all over Australia.
- From spears, shields and throwing sticks to hockey, marbles and fireworks, this beautifully illustrated and cleverly structured book builds for the reader a composite picture of the lives of Aboriginal children in the past and in the present, and adds significantly to records of Aboriginal society then and now.
