Australia's indigenous peoples.

Summary

Outlines the lifestyle and customs of 11 grops of Indigenous peoples living in the Central Australian desert regions. The text links the harshness of the environment with the richness of plant and animal life, which thus provides common ground for the Indigenous groups dwelling in the desert.
