WINNER of the 2019 Australian Speech Pathology Book of the Year Awards – Indigenous Children Category

"The simple story-telling combines with stunning images to honour the service and contribution of Australian veterans, and Aboriginal soldiers."

A powerful and moving story about true mateship. Dreaming Soldiers weaves tales of childhood adventures and battlefield challenges with gentle Dreaming themes.

This is a touching friendship story about Jimmy and Johnno, two young Australian boys in the 1900s; mates who do everything together, sharing adventures and growing up side by side in the dusty cattle yards of an Outback South Australian station and later on the muddy WWI battlefields of the Western Front.

"A powerful (and overdue) look at the war. Shane McGrath’s work is stunning a perfect foil for Catherine’s compelling story." - A. Paterson
