Isobel Bevis is a Wilman, Ballardong Noongar woman, born and raised in Collie, south-west of Western Australia. Currently living on Bindjareb boodja with her husband and 3 daughters. Raised in a large Noongar family, growing up on Wilman Country with strong connection to Minninup River where her Ancestors are resting.
A young child wants to meet their Ancestors. They want to know them, and learn from them and follow their ways. Their mother gently explains that they have already met their Ancestors, yesterday, today and tomorrow, and that they are everywhere in Country, walking close behind them. This lyrical, dual language picture book from two debut Noongar creators celebrates the beauty of Country and family.
