Front Cover
Thorsons, 2002 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 148 pages
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.
