Description - Dingo: The Story of Our Mob by Sally Dingo

The story of one of Australia's most loved film and television personalities.

The story of one of Australia's most loved film and television personalities.

The Dingo family history follows the formula of any self-respecting soap opera. It's full of life, death, laughter, violence, struggle, children, poverty, alcohol, and surprisingly after all that, success. It is the stuff of overblown fiction. It is also a history shared with every other Aboriginal family, a history still unknown to many Australians. Dingo makes that incredible story truly accessible to non-Aboriginal Australians. Told through the eyes of Ernie Dingo's wife, Sally, it comes alive. It is also Sally's story. Emerging from her white middle-class existence in a sleepy Tasmanian town, Sally marries a charismatic actor and the turbulent Dingo tribe. She finds much to love and much to cry about. With the unique perspective of a white woman adopted by an Aboriginal family who is able to write about her experiences with great skill and warmth, Dingo is a story to be treasured.

'I think I have learnt more about Aboriginal society than in anything else I've heard or read for a long time.'
The Sydney Morning Herald

'A book that bites deep into our consciousness'.
