- "In 'Ngarrindjeri Wurruwarrin', Diane Bell presents a finely textured ethnographic portrait of Aboriginal culture. Here are the voices of women and men who struggled to protect their sacred sites in the Hindmarsh Island, Murray Mouth and Goolwa area. When they did, it became the subject of a series of court cases, legal decisions, media speculation, anthropological disputation and parliamentary conflict, ending in 2001 with a vindication of their words." -- Publisher's website.
