The Little Black Princess: A True Tale of Life in the Never-Never Land

Author(s): Jeannie Gunn


These simple sketches of Territory life centre around the young Aboriginal girl Bett-Bett (Dolly Bonson) and her dog Sue; as she appears from the Never- Never, stays awhile, learns a little, laughs a lot, wonders much, and finally returns to the bush again. This early tale of life in the Northern Territory was first published in 1905, and was followed up by the classic We of the Never-Never, the author's memoir of life with her family on Elsey Station,, nearly 500 kilometres south of Darwin.
