AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'We all love legends. Imagine the mysterious magic of the Australian bush and the sea. The are ancient, and so are their Aboriginal legends.'

'Each tribe has different legends about the land. For many, many years they have repeated them, passing the legends down from generation to generation by word of mouth, telling of spirits being, and the animals, plants and landscapes that they created.'

'The legends in this book are told by Aborigines from widely different regions of Australia: Tasmania, Western Australia and Stradbroke Island. With permission of local custodians, Oodgeroo Noonuccal has gathered these stories together.' (Source: Back cover)
