By Joe Ross and Stacey Bush Illustrated by Remi Ross and Boheme Ross


Winthali is a traditional Bunuba story, adapted here by Joe Willigan Ross and Stacey Bush. Greedy Old Man Crocodile (Lallanggarra) won't share his fire with the Bunuba people, but Brown Falcon (Girrganyi), with the help of the young animals comes up with a clever plan to take a fire-stick from his home at Jarrambaya. This story belongs to the Danggu people of the Fitzroy Valley.

Joe Willigan Ross is a Bunuba leader from Fitzroy Crossing and Director of the Bunuba Dawangirri Aboriginal Corporation. Joe and his family are custodians of many Bunuba stories and he adapted this story in Bunuba. Stacey Bush is his partner and wrote the English version. They live in Fitzroy Crossing, WA.
Remi Nyandat Ross and Boheme Baiana Ross are the son and daughter of Joe and Stacey. This is the first published book they have illustrated.
