Summary "Our stories our survival centres on the continuity of Wiradjuri culture, told through the lends of sport. It highlights the differences in the way that stories are told about Aboriginal people's experience of sport and physical activity. It is both a celebration of the survival of a Wiradjuri storytelling tradition and a call to rethink the way that stories about Aboriginal people are told."--Back cover
