    'The harsh, beautiful landscape of Western Australia's Pilbara region has been home to the Guruma people for thousands of years. In this book the Guruma elders share stories of the land and the way they have lived there, revealing the richness and ingenuity of daily life in an uncompromising landscape. Traditional ways and customs, Dreamtime stories and religious beliefs are described here, alongside photographs that bring country to life and show the importance of cultural sites. These stories were collected for the benefit of Guruma children yet to be born. They tell of the strength and vitality of Guruma culture and the fundamental signficance of the traditional relationship with the land in a way that will enrich the understanding of readers everywhere.
