Summary
"This book tells the story of Yol?u and two missionaries who lived in the area we now call Arnhem Land for 50 years. It celebrates there relationships between Yol?u, Harold and Ella Shepherdson. These relationships were based on respect, tolerance and hard work. Together they built the town on Echo Island from scratch. They worked side by side to develop the infrastructure necessary for a town. Harold used his planes to connect with Yol?u living inland and in other places along the coast. He encouraged them to protect their land by staying on their country."--Back cover
