Going for Kalta takes you on a special journey with Yvonne, Brenda and Tjitji Tjuta as they go hunting for kalta-sleepy lizards-out in bush of Yalata, South Australia. We discover how Aboriginal people track and catch kalta and learn how they cook them in the bush. Going for Kalta is illustrated with beautiful color photographs throughout. Key words in the story are written in both Aboriginal Pitjantjatjara and English, with a pronunciation guide included. This reprint was the winner of the 1998 Australian Awards for Excellence in Educational Publishing (Primary Single Book) and the 1999 CBC Children's Book of the Year-Eve Pownall Award for Information Books.
