Found this text in a search for Merrigpena, mentioned in The Booandik Tribe of South Australian Aborigines (1880). The story from that book (Why the Emu has Short Wings) is copied here (adding 1 mispelling), but they don’t credit it and they tell us this a “Legend of the Boonandik tribe, Mount Gaurbier, Australia”.
If they can’t get simple details like *Booandik* and *Mount Gambier* right, then I wouldn’t put too much faith in the accuracy of this book.
Probably an interesting book, nonetheless.

This book is excellent. It's my first port of call for folklore and past knowledge of the natural world. So much information, so well catagorised. I just love it.
