For me this book was a window into the world of a completely different culture. Not only does it show how people lived in the illiterate world, but how their civilization survived. The deep history of the songlines has a compelling magic that unites the people with the land in a way that no western culture has seen. If you want to explore a new way of seeing the world, read this wonderful book.
