9781865085869: Finding Ullagundahi Island

Through the memories of her much-loved grandmother, Mabel Freeman, Fabienne is looking for her family's untold history and Aboriginality. As a young woman, Mabel Freeman made the journey from the lush green coast to the dry red landscape of Coober Pedy where she lived in a dug-out with her opal-hunting lover, Bruno. The juxtaposition of desert and river highlights the incredible distance, both literally and metaphorically, that Mabel, and in turn Fabienne, travelled from their "land" and culture.
