Camilla Chance has been a lyric writer for an international performing group. the Kuban Cossacks, a high school teacher, an editor and wife and mother, and a book reviewer for two prestigious Australian newspapers—“The Age” and “The Australian.” For 27 years she worked on her latest book “Wisdom Man,” the powerfully moving story and philosophy of the Aboriginal leader named Banjo Clarke. It became an immediate best-seller in Australia and has since won the American USABookNews.com Award for best multicultural work. Camilla was also the first non-Aboriginal to receive the prestigious Unsung Hero Award from Aboriginal people for her dedicated friendship and work for them behind the scenes. Her work with the Aboriginal people and her long friendship and record of the life and work of Banjo Clarke have changed her philosophies as she now believes that the indigenous people who are living true to their old laws are living the closest to how we all need to live now, in order for our planet to survive.
