It is customary among Aboriginal groups not to use the name or image of a deceased person for a period following their death. The families of the deceased authors of this book have decided the names and images be used to acknowledge their important role. Deceased authors are indicated by the dagger symbol, and users of this book should show caution in displaying the images or saying the names of the deceased as it may cause sadness and distress for family members.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

"In this book we tell the Wadjiginy, Emmiyangal and Mendheyangal story of our plants and animals. We have worked on this book for a long time, and before us our elders passed on knowledge of country for thousands of generations. We have made this book from our own plant and animal knowledge to keep it strong, and to allow the next generations to learn it, understand it and use it. We want the children, the rangers, future elders and all our countrymen to be able to learn about their culture and to look after it forever." -- back cover.
