Summary

From spears, shields and throwing sticks to hockey, marbles and fireworks, this beautifully illustrated and cleverly structured book builds for the reader a unique picture of the lives of Aboriginal children in the past and present, and adds significantly to records of Aboriginal society then and now.

A fascinating account of a little-known aspect of Australian social history which reaches into the treasury of Aboriginal toys found on the shelves of museums all over Australia.
