you and me murrawee
We walk this same brown earth, you and me, Murrawee .
In this lyrically beautifully observed picture book, we see through the eyes of a young girl camping on the river with her family, life as it would have been two hundred years ago.
On a family camping trip in the Australian bush, a young girl plays and watches her family, sensing the life of an indigenous girl 200 years ago, doing many of the same things she is doing.
She calls the girl Murawee, which is the Ngarrindjeri people's word for elder sister.
A stunning book showing the relationship and connection between a modern child and a girl who walked that same path many years ago.
