Summary

"Cleverman is rooted in Aboriginal mythology. In the near future, creatures from ancient mythology have emerged and must co-exist with humans. Known as 'Hairypeople' they must live amongst humans and battle for survival in a world that wants to exploit and destroy them. One young man - the Cleverman - struggles with his own power and the responsibility to unite this divided world."--Back cover.

Notes

"June 2017"

"The Aboriginal people of Australia are the longest surviving culture on earth with over 60,000 years of stories known as the Dreaming. The Dreaming is the spiritual realm that binds the past, present and future together. It is inhabited by incredible creatures and spirits. At the head of this realm is the Cleverman, a powerful man who is the conduit between the Dreaming and the real world.”--Pages [1 and 2]
