AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In Melbourne, a baby girl is found abandoned in the Victorian Art Gallery. She is wrapped in a shawl decorated with a motif that links her to ancient rock paintings in the Kimberley...In Los Angeles, a movie producer's dying daughter is haunted by nightmares after visiting the Kimberley...And it is to the Kimberley that ex-nun Beth Van Horton brings a disparate group of travellers whose lives will be changed forever.'

'The Kimberley - a land that cradles Australia's ancient treasures - is also home to a people whose powerful secrets could unlock the future for modern mankind.' (Source: Publishers website)

Notes

  • Author's note: The Songmaster is a work of fiction. While it is inspired by certain events, places and people, it remains a fictitious work, drawn from my imagination. This book is written in the hope it may forge closer links between indigenous and other Australians.
  • Editor's note: Di Morrissey travelled to the Kimberley in 1996 to research The Songmaster and is indebted to the Ngarinyin people and their advisers for their assistance.

  • Other formats: Also braille, sound recording.
  • Other formats: Also large print.
