Wamparla Apira (Possums and Tall Trees)


Written by Syd Strangways and illustrated by Kathy Arbon.

Told in Arabana and English by Elder Thanthi Syd Strangways, this fascinating story is beautifully illustrated by Kathy Arbon, and is also an important addition to the Arabana Wangka or language resources for the Arabana people of northern South Australia. As a child, Thanti Syd travelled the region with his grandmother and other Arabana tribespeople, camping and hunting for possums for food and clothing.
