Glenyse Ward


Wandering Girl1 by Glenyse Ward is one of the first books to be published by the newly established Aboriginal press Magabala Books. It is an autobiographical account, featuring so many of the aspects which have become part and parcel of Aboriginal lives as late as into the 60s: Forcible removal from home, growing up on a Mission Station, being sent out to work as a servant. Glenyse Ward describes the loneliness and injustices of such a life, but she also celebrates the human warmth she met amongst friends and the will to survive which finally led to her escape.
