Down Among the Wild Men: A narrative journal of fifteen years pursuing the Old Stone Age Aborigines of Australia
In the unforgiving desert, the Australian aborigine faces his stark life bravely, adaptable, with humour if possible, with ferocity if necessary. His implements are of the Stone Age; his skills are astonishing; his traditions are very old and very potent. On the fringes of modern, technocratic ‘civilisation’, he faces challenges and attitudes for which he is totally unprepared.
