Written in his own native tongue as well as in English, this is the autobiography of Monty Hale, a senior Ngulipartu man from the Pilbara region of Western Australia. A remarkable account of an indigenous life, this narrative chronicles Hale's migration from the desert to the station country of the eastern Pilbara, his childhood growing up on Mt. Edgar Station, Australia's engagement in World War II, and the famous Pilbara station-worker's strike of 1946. Deeply personal and humorous, Hale also describes his relationship with a woman named Nalma; a union that was not accepted by their community.show more
