This book is a culmination of the author's work with the final generation of fully fluent Jingulu speakers from 1995 to 2004, and incorporates the findings of numerous researchers throughout the twentieth century. The volume begins with some three dozen short texts, translated, covering a variety of topics including food gathering, implement manufacture, and ecology.
The dictionary section includes a detailed Jingulu-English dictionary with example sentences for each word as well as grammatical and ethnographic notes, an English-Jingulu word finder, and a word list by semantic domain.
Both parts of the books are illustrated with photographs from the author's own collection.
