AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Visitors to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park often think that few animals live in such an arid landscape. In Mingkiri, Anangu (Aboriginal people) guide the reader through the park, describing the surprisingly diverse wildlife and complex natural history foudn there. This is a fascinating insight into a little known side of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park: the habits of animals and plants, the seasons, and how the country is burned and looked after according to the Tjukurpa, or Anangu Law, that governs all. Based on a recent fauna survey of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park conducted by the Mutitjulu Community and CSIRO scientists, Mingkiri also includes a comprehensive list of Anangu names and a pronunciation guide.'
