Buy the Ebook
Sally Morgan’s My Place is an Australian classic. Since first publication in 1987, My Place has sold more than half a million copies in Australia, been translated and read all over the world, and been reprinted dozens of times. Sally’s rich, zesty and moving work is perhaps the best-loved biography of Aboriginal Australia ever written.
My Place for Young Readers is an abridged edition, especially adapted for younger readers, that retains all the charm and power of the original. It is published as three separate books. Sally’s Story focuses on Sally’s childhood, and her growing realisation of the truth her family has been hiding.
