Summary

An old Aboriginal ritual leader, Bungawa, lives with a pack of dingoes on his tribal land in a remote part of Arnhem Land (Australia) just as his ancestors lived since time immemorial. His children have been forcibly taken from him by State authorities to be brought up and assimilated into the white man's world. Bungawa, however, sees them embodied in the souls of the dingoes with whom he shares life in the wilderness, according to traditional teachings. --Front cover flap.
