The popular Cygnus author Rebecca Campbell says in the foreword of this lovely book “The Future Ancestor is a call to see the sacred in the everyday, and to develop a conscious relationship with the land that holds, sustains and nurtures us. It’s a clear call to action to own our story, personally and culturally, and to heal what’s ours to heal so that, ultimately, we can take our place as ancestors for those yet to come.” The author, Annabelle Sharman, is an Aboriginal Bush woman of the Mutti Mutti tribe, one of the “Stolen Generation” who were forcibly removed from their parents. Here she shares her own (some heart-rending) stories and wisdom along with the wisdom of her ancestors. Beautifully written, poignant, poetic and uplifting, this book is an absolute delight.
