"Holding Yawulyu is an historical account of Wirrimanu (Balgo), a profound insight into the pressures white culure exerts on Indigenous women and their law. It is a touching personal story of courage and resilience in the face of adversity. Zohl dé Ishtar presents an insightful analysis of competing interests that makes Indigenous and White interactions complex, often painful, and fraught problems."--Back cover.
