Since its publication in 1987, Sally Morgan’s 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 Younger Readers is an abridged edition that retains all the charm and power of the original.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘A book for everyone: a book with the form and texture of a novel and the complexity and pace of a mystery not solved until the final pages. It is wonderfully entertaining.’ New York Times Book Review

‘A triumphant story that makes you glad it’s been told.’ Times on Sunday

‘Sad and wise and funny … unbelievably and unexpectedly moving, Sally Morgan’s love for her own spiritual and racial roots and her struggle to uncover them reveals a new Australia (the old) and a new way to embrace the elders and the young of all our peoples, wherever (and whoever) they might be. A book with heart.’ Alice Walker, author of The Colour Purple

'I highly recommend this wonderful biography for both adults and younger readers.' Buzz Words
