40,000 years of Aboriginal history told through Aboriginal story tellers.Australian Dreaming is the first Aboriginal history of the Australian continent and its people, as told by the Aboriginal story tellers. Through traditional myths and legends, it gives an explanation of the formation of the landscape and creation of many outstanding geographical features. It recounts epic travels of the great Spirit Ancestors and tells how they created the animals and plants and gave birth to the earliest people of this land. It tells, also, how the Ancestors taught the Aboriginal people to live in harmony with nature and how to behave towards each other, thus setting the pattern of Aboriginal culture for over 40,000 years.
