An indigenous view of the world

A fascinating trip into the esoteric world of the Australian aborigines....a people inextricably bound to the land and the mythologies that enables them to live in complete harmony with it.
On the surface, their way of thinking is difficult for the modern western mind to grasp, but once one melds into their ethos, one can begin to appreciate the innate wisdom contained therein.
This is not a book for the couch potato sitting in front of the television twenty-two hours each day. But for the seeker... the searcher for a new way to understand our earth and our connection to it, this book furnishes us a first-rate tour of one fascinating part of it.
