This nonfiction book provides an introduction to both the traditional and modern social structures of Indigenous Australians. This includes clans, families, marriage and children, and rules for social interactions. It also covers the period of colonisation and the effect it had on Indigenous Australians and their links to their own family, culture, history and language.
Each double page spread covers a topic, some topics have two double page spreads. Some topics include real world examples illustrating the points covered. There are many photos of Indigenous Australians and paintings from the colonial era and maps, which enhance the text. At the end of the book is a Timeline of Indigenous Australian history, a glossary, an index and some suggestions of further reading.
While this book deals with distressing topics, it also conveys hope for the future. Aboriginal people are winning rights that improve their lives and enact a cultural revival.
