Summary
Davenport and Johnson, along with Yuwali, tell the story of how she and her family, who are Martu people, were removed from the Western Desert in Australia in 1964 so that the area could be used for rocket and nuclear weapons testing. Using her accounts and those of patrol officers, sometimes day-by-day, they describe the events that led up to the removal, the way of life of the Martu, patrols of the Western area, their experiences in civilization and living at missions, and detribalization. Davenport and Johnson work on Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa, a Martu history and archive project in Australia. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
