Marcia Langton: Welcome to Country by Marcia Langton
I sense a growing desire for non-Indigenous Australians to know about our Indigenous culture. The recent successes of Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia (one of our bestsellers last month) and Alexis Wright’s Stella Prize-winning biography, Tracker, attest to that.
Academic Marcia Langton has produced the perfect book for people who want to know more about our rich Indigenous history. Ostensibly a travel guide, it’s also an introduction to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture, and places of interest. Whether you just want to find out more about where you live or you want to plan a trip, this is a wonderful guide to culture and places. Beautifully produced and illustrated, it’s equally at home on the shelf or in the glove box.
