    Hello all,

    Would anyone know of any African centred online bookstores one could reliably order Marimba Ani's book, 'Yurugu' from?

    I'm itching to get my hands on this book.

    I've looked everwhere [or everywhere I could find] and was either told the book is no longer available as it is now out of print or I got the impression from my brief exchange of emails with some sites, that I would never receive my order.

    For reasons I'd rather keep to myself, I don't trust Amazon.

    Anyway, if any of you could let me know, that would be very great.
    I live in Australia, a country whose media is very much dominated by the European point of view and where Africans [especially the indigenous Aborigines] are marginalised and stereotyped and the aforementioned book is of course, no where to be found.

    I myself am not a true native Australian and neither for that matter is anyone else [apart from the Aborigines] but hail from Nigeria....but I digress :)

    Thanks in advance for any help provided....and very nice to be here.
