Written by Sally Morgan


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.


'My Place is a deeply moving account of a search for truth, into which a whole family is gradually drawn; finally freeing the tongues of the author’s mother and grandmother, allowing them to tell their own stories.' Better Reading

'These experiences illustrate the way in which the spiritual nature of the world is incorporated into one's connection to place, home and country.' Aileen Moreton-Robinson, ABC
