Aborigine Dreaming: An Introduction to the Wisdom and Thought of the Aboriginal Traditions of Australia
In the vast silence of their isolation, the Australian Aborigines have learned the ways of living in harmony with the Earth and kept a sacred perspective on the natural world. This text looks at the fascinating history and culture of the Aborigines and explains: the world of the sky heroes, and how the Earth was formed by mythic creatures from the Dreaming; the secret rites of the Aborigines, their ideas of reincarnation; their stories, fables and myths, which form an extraordinary testament to the human spirit; how the Aborigines represent the conscience of mankind, offering a parable of human survival in harmony with the environment.
