In 1982, Sally Morgan travelled back to her grandmother's birthplace. What started as a tentative search for information about her family, turned into an overwhelming emotional and spiritual pilgrimage. My Place is a moving account of a search for truth into which a whole family is gradually drawn, finally freeing the tongues of the author's mother and grandmother, allowing them to tell their own stories.

    " An important insight into life as an indigenous Australian - this was incredibly moving - the sort of history it reveals should be taught to every Australian, from an early age. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yik | 2/6/2014

    " A book on the rediscovery of the Aboriginal heritage of a Western Australia girl and her family. Very touching, narrated in wonderful prose. Good for those interested in Aboriginal family life and issues. "

    " One of my very favorite books of all time...its like an old friend I keep revisiting. An honest and illuminating look at some of the issues growing up aboriginal in Australia both in the 1970's and now. While much has changed, much remains the same. Clearly and simply written Morgan's words form a rhythm of their own in the telling of her story...beautifully done and well worth the read. "

    " Great book. As an American who didn't get too much Australian history growing up, I found it informative, easy to follow, and entertaining/touching. It reads like a novel/autobiography/history and transitions between all three genre's with amazing seamlessness. I would absolutely recommend to anyone who is into cultural history and biographies. I love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/19/2014

    " A must read especially for people living in Australia "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wilma Rebstock | 1/16/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. I think it is a stretch that this family didn't realize all along that they were who they were. Anyway it is a compelling story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathryn | 1/4/2014

    " Amazing.Loved this book.Easy to read & well written.Will definitely read this again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Juliette | 1/2/2014

    " To me this book was poorly written. There wasn't any kind of description at all, and everything was kind of just... skipped through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilda | 1/1/2014

    " Read when I was in my first year in junior high school, from my school library.Quiet depressing, but love it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Moira | 1/1/2014

    " An amazing account of aboriginal life in Australia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 9/19/2013

    " The book is a bit slow, but the writing is honest. The story she shares of her family shines a shocking light at how aboriginal people were treated in Australia until fairly recently (not that an American has much right to be talking, but I guess I had hoped things were better in Oz...) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nastazia | 6/29/2013

    " You know you loathe a book when it makes you re-consider your preferences and dreams. I feel cheated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bama | 2/26/2013

    " membacanya seperti menjalani kisahnya sendiri, seolah menjadi anggota keluarga Morgan. Buku ini yang paling berkesan yang pernah gw baca "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gracen Mason | 2/24/2013

    " This was a really good story, however I did find it a bit slow moving and hard to get into. Took a bit of perseverance, but I'm glad I read it. A very touching story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 2/23/2013

    " Loved this. Thought that the last quarter of the book was not as good as the last, the retelling of the elders stories was powerful but dragged and seemed to be somewhat of a non-sequiter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 10/22/2012

    " I've read this book a number of times and will no doubt read it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/28/2012

    " Not actually that bad a book but it was completely ruined by having to study it at school. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trak | 6/13/2012

    " Read this when for Uni and glad I did. Very insightful book about the difficulties faced by a young aboriginal reading. It is required reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gekko | 4/17/2012

    " This was on the curriculum when I was at high school, and deservedly so. Should be required reading for all west australians... "

    " Beautifully told story of the stolen identities of Australian indigenous peoples. "
