The continent of Australia is an ancient landscape with unique flora and fauna. Through the mists of centuries long past and gone, it has also been home to a unique people - the Aboriginal people. These people, with their adherence to the spiritual rituals of their Dreaming, the guiding presence of their totem ancestors and their mystical tie with the natural world, have given Australia a powerful and enduring heritage.

This heritage has survived, faint at times yet somehow strangely forceful, through the desperate clashes that followed the arrival of white colonists. In spite of the near genocide inflicted in the nineteenth century, the timeless essence of Aboriginality continues to encompass this land and affect all Australians.

'Australia's Aboriginal Heritage' gives a factual, thought-provoking insight into the heritage of the Aboriginal people through an instructive, general coverage of Aboriginal lifestyle and history, both traditional and transitional. It is the story of the Aboriginal people, a people of faith and fervour, whose destiny is linked irretrievably and unconditionally with that of Australia.

An anthology of contemporary Aboriginal poetry is also included.
