Summary

Buludja, an aboriginal woman who spent her life at the Elsey, a 5,000 square kilometre cattle station in the Northern Territory, provides a unique first person account of the motives and strength of the Mungari Aborigines from 1914 onwards. She creates a direct and pure insight into an important part of our aboriginal heritage.
