Take a walk through the ‘monsoon forest’ in Kakadu National park, on Gagudju country, in this beautiful picture book.
Walking in Gagudju Country takes readers on a journey through the flora and fauna of the Kakadu National Park monsoon forest, meeting a wide variety of different animals and plants along the way.
Each animal is identified by their traditional name in the Kundjeyhmi language group, and those names are colour-coded to match an image with their English name close by, to assist readers with identification.
Information about how the Indigenous Bininj people learnt to observe the plants and animals around them, in order to survive and understand the world in different ways are also introduced.
Diane Lucas and Ben Tyler lead readers on an educational and inspiring journey, representing the culture of the Bininj people through vibrant, detailed illustrations.
This book is a wonderful resource for investigating the culture and traditional lands of the Bininj people, as well as the plants and animals native to Kakadu National Park.
