Australian Legendary Tales: folklore of the Noongahburrahs as told to the Piccaninnies

Book cover
Book Description: "This is still one of the best available collections of Australian Aboriginal folklore. It was written for a popular audience, but the stories are retold with integrity, and not filtered, as was the case with similar books from this period. That said, the style of this book reflects Victorian sentimentality and, an occasional tinge of racism that may not sit well with some modern readers."
