Betty Villeminot



Betty Villeminot is the author of several books and films about Australia. In 1956, together with Jacques Villeminot, and with the encouragement of Professor AP Elkin, she had the opportunity to spend a number of months with Aboriginal people of the desert who had been only lightly touched by Western civilisation. This first encounter, followed by others, completely changed her perception of the world in which she lived.

Duffy & Snellgrove will publish her novel Alcheringa in June 2004.
