              Great-Grandpa Liman lives in a small house by the sea. There are no lights - just stars as far as the eye can see. Brother Moon is a powerful story lovingly told by a great-grandfather to his great-grandson. Beneath the dark sky of the Northern Territory, Hippy-Boy is captivated ...when Great-Grandpa Liman tells him the mysterious story of his brother and how it guides his connection to Country. Great-Grandpa is a masterful storyteller and, as the tale unfolds, he finally reveals his brother is the moon - a wonder of the universe. Hippy-Boy learns how his greatgrandfather uses the phases of the moon when he goes hunting and fishing, and why it is important for us all to have an understanding of the natural world. Liman (Harry Morgan), the author's grandfather, was a respected Wadjigany man - a leader amongst his people and the community. Liman was born at Manjimamany in the Northern Territory in 1916. He was a canoe maker, hunter, community mediator, and a family man who lived off the land and travelled the seas. Liman spoke Batjamalh, his first language, and other languages from the Daly River area.

              On the way to a Bran Nue Dae Magabala Books is pleased to announce the long-awaited New Edition of Bran Nue Dae, the script and musical score of the trail-blazing musical written by the late Jimmy Chi and musicians from the Broome band, Kuckles. Bran Nue Dae took Australia by sto...rm when it premiered at the Perth International Arts Festival in 1990 - national tours followed. It won the prestigious Sidney Myer Performing Arts Award and was highly commended in the Human Rights awards the same year. In 1991, the book won the Special Award in the WA Premier's Book Awards. A film adaptation was released in 2009. The Story Set in the 1960s - the era of assimilation, the Vietnam war, Land Rights, the White Australia policy and the 1967 Referendum - it is a partly autobiographical story, one shared by many of Chi's era. Homesick Willy is expelled from his Catholic boarding school in Perth and embarks on the long road-trip home to Broome and Djarindjin, with a crew of irreverent, larger-than-life characters. He is in search of identity, love and belonging. On the surface a simple story, Bran Nue Dae explores darker truths of the era from an Aboriginal perspective. As Jimmy Chi once said, 'The naked truth is ugly, but when he's dressed in the fine clothes of the parable, then he becomes acceptable.' Includes original script and musical score photographic record of cast members/musicians in rehearsal, Broome 1990 performance photos taken during Australian tour, 1990
