Description

In this beautifully crafted book on the myths that constitute the meanings of the Blue Mountains, Martin Thomas takes the reader on a journey through a compelling study of culture, landscape and mythology.
For both Aboriginal people and their colonisers, the rugged landscape of the Blue Mountains has stood as an intriguing riddle and a stimulus to the imagination. The author evokes this dramatic and bewildering landscape and leads his readers through the cultural history of the locality in order to probe the 'dreamwork of imperialism'.
