Summary Long ago the Mirning Aboriginal people lived along the isolated Nullabor coastal plain of Western and South Australia. But it is the essenece of Gampa that draws April Lawrie-Smith back. Walking in the places of her grandfather and guided by her family elders, April reconnects with her childhood, her grief, and one man's family history that spanned early white contact and missionary settlement, the Maralinga bombing and a continuing spiritual connection to the Southern Right whale. The grandeur of the southern Australian scenery provides a backdrop for this story of Aboriginal family, history, affirmation and love.
