Summary "The women of Warmun Community in the eastern Kimberley have an immeasurable knowledge of Law, Culture and their land. In these stories about bush tucker, bush medicine, and childbirth practices, they impart an age-old wisdom which focuses on welcoming the child into the world. They tell of traditional uses of plants to treat a range of complaints in both children and adults, including colic, colds, stomach ailments, asthma, sleeplessness and irritability." "Ngalangangpum Jarrakpu Purrurn emphasises the importance to Aboriginal health of traditional ways, including an intimate relationship with the land, and is an invaluable resource for Aboriginal mothers, health practitioners in Aboriginal communities, as well as the layperson. Beautifully illustrated, it includes paintings by such acclaimed artists as Queenie McKenzie and Goodie Barrett."--BOOK JACKET
