“From Maralinga to the Murray, Alice to Adelaide, ten Aboriginal women tell their stories of walking through atomic clouds, being taken from their mothers in the process of ‘Assimilation’, traditional punishment and tribal life.  Two even had time to play Test Cricket and enter the Miss Australia Quest.
