"You Used to Call It Desert - We Used to Live There" by Pat Lowe. The first draft of this book was written under a tree on the slope of a sandhill where for several years, Englishwoman Pat Lowe shared a desert camp with her lifetime partner, Walmajarri man Jimmy Pike. While spending time in the red heart of the country that had been home to the Walmajarri people for thousands of years, they recorded Pike's stories through his painting and Lowe's writing.
