In his youth, Waipuldanya was taught to track and hunt wild animals, to live off the land, to provide for his family with the aid only of his spears and woomeras. This is the gripping story of his boyhood and youth, and how he trained as a skilled medical assistant, to become a citizen of both the Aboriginal and whitefella worlds. This is the first great classic of Aboriginal autobiography, as told to renowned writer, Douglas Lockwood. Phillip Waipuldanya Roberts OBE (1922 – 24 November 1988) was a traditional doctor, activist and advisor to the Commonwealth Government of Australia on Aboriginal policies and programs.
