Filled with mythical half-human, half-animal beings such as the Rainbow Snake and the woman who changed into a kangaroo, this extraordinary collection of legends and fables explains how the animals and birds appeared in Australia, and how the lakes, rivers and mountains were made.

How did snakes become poisonous? Why are there black swans only in Australia? Learn a bout the powerful Rainbow Snake, red and black flying foxes, the Eagle-hawk and the Medicine-man in these incredible tales of the Dramtime. So much of traditional Aboriginal storytelling teaches us about the animal world and the spiritual bond shared between the Aboriginal people and nature.
