Summary "Aboriginal people were still living in their traditional country in the 1950's - right in the middle of Sydney. This extraodinary story tells how Dennis Foley, a Gai-Mariagal (northern Sydney) man grew up with his grandmother and uncles. He learned the traditional stories of Manly, Narrabeen, Crows Nest and Forty Baskets Beach. After you've read this story, your Sydney can never be the same again."
