Summary

Australian Aborigines are legendary hunters and trackers. Few people have more than a sketchy idea of the skills they have to master from early childhood onwards in order to provide for their own needs and those of their families. The author lived for three years in the desert, hunting and exploring her Walmajarri partner's country.
