This book tells the traditional Lardil story of the Squid and the Rat which has been told on Mornington Island for a very long time. In the old days people told and listened to stories like this many times. They did not write the stories down so every time a story was told it would be slightly different. Old people learnt the details of these stories through dreams, and sometimes these dreams also came with songs.
