Summary
"This book tells the story of Queenie McKenzie, a remarkable indigenous woman from the East Kimberely in Western Australia. Queenie was an exceptional teacher, elder and internationally recognised artist. Written In The Land explores her personal story and that of her 'country' through her own words with a narrative also by the author Jennifer Field and other ethnologist commentators. The book is illustrated throughout with reproductions of Queenie's artisitic works and stunning landscape photos."--Provided by publisher. Annotation pending
