All My Mob/Ginibi, Ruby L/Paper/0702235962/S031-B
University of Queensland Press
All My Mob is a compelling collection of reminiscences on family life, Indigenous social issues, 'home' and being Aboriginal in today's Australia.
All My Mob is a fascinating compilation of new stories of contemporary urban Koori life, and includes selected highlights from Ruby's earlier memoir Real Deadly. In spite of often tragic circumstances, these tales are told with Ruby's trademark humour and spirit and remind us of the strong sense of community and culture that has survived in Indigenous Australia.
The stories tell how Ruby's people, the Bundjalung nation, live today. Ruby's great gift for storytelling illustrates one of the Aboriginal survival mechanisms - if her people did not laugh, they would surely cry because of the dispossession of their land and the way it affected them, and continues to do so.
