Where the Ancestors Walked: Australia as an Aboriginal Landscape

Author(s): Philip A. Clarke


This work delves into the exciting story of one of the oldest continuous civilizations on earth. Beginning with the complexities of early human colonization and continuing through later European resettlement, the history of Australia's native people is told in a wide-ranging and sympathetic fashion. Drawing on research from anthropology, cultural geography, and environmental studies, the intricate and changing ways in which aborigines and white settlers have related to each other is discussed and the origins of aboriginal art, medicine, and music are chronicled.
