“Clarrie Cameron’s recently released storytelling collection is nothing less than a force of life, almost a diary of culture and history.” Darcy Hay, Midwest Times
YMAC member Clarrie Cameron, from the Nhanhagardi tribe of Champion Bay, has lived in the Midwest Region all his life, travelling around from Geraldton to Wiluna. From station life to dusty outback towns, new book of Clarrie’s campfire yarns reflect his country, culture and identity….
- A huge snake takes refuge under the body of a napping grandfather.
- One 16-year-old girl keeps 300 head of cattle together for weeks without losing a beast.
- Trackers lead police deep into the desert to find a murderer and rescue an abducted woman.
Now others can read them on the pages of his new book Elephants in the Bush and other Yamatji Yarns.
Clarrie will share his book of short stories at Geraldton’s Big Sky, Readers and Writers Festival. Hear about Carrie’s experiences and get your book signed at the festival launch on Friday, September 13.
