The Girl from the Great Sandy Desert is the remarkable account of the life of Mana, a young Walmajarri girl and her family in the desert country of north-west Australia. A collection of accessible stories that elucidate the rich cultural lives of pre-contact Aboriginal Australians, this book is a valuable resource for educators and young readers, and is accompanied by beautiful black and white illustrations.

“Lowe clearly has great respect for, and understanding of, the Indigenous culture and language of the Walmajarri people of the Kimberley region, and this book is a great way for young people to gain a similar understanding.”
– Hannah Cartmel, Books + Publishing
