What makes the bullroarer more than a toy? How did the frilled lizard scar its tongue? From acts of creation and the deeds of the Great Spirit, to totemic ancestors and tales explaining natural phenomena, this delightful collection of stories paints a picture of the mystical bond that exists between Aboriginal people, the environment and the spirit life of the Dreamtime.
Gathered from often quite isolated Aboriginal groups throughout Australia and passed down over thousands of years, some myths have striking similarities.
Aboriginal Myths - Tales of the Dreamtime gives a fascinating glimpse of the wild and entertaining deeds of the mythic beings populating Aboriginal spiritual life.
