“Shark Bay Salt Water Stories: Yarning with Jimmy” is a collection of stories looking at Jimmy’s life growing up around the Gutharraguda (Shark Bay) area over nine decades.
The film tells his stories about growing up in the Shark Bay community, how he worked as a fisherman, stockman, shearing hand, and cook, and how he learned how to carve pearl shell, emu eggs and boab nuts from his father.
