Keywords: Literature; History; Aboriginal Australian.

This paper explores the intersections and reciprocal interactions between literature and history with reference to texts marked by their Aboriginal authorship. Two life stories published in the last decade of twentieth century Australia spawn reflections on this topic. Here, the analysis and interpretation of "Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence" and "Auntie Rita" focuses on both their literary and historical features, taking into account the emotional and political issues they engage with.
