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. Yulu seeks a better life for herself and her family. But the opportunity she siezes comes with tisks... ...and consequences. Bindawu warrior Jarli roams the streets of the city. Observing and understanding his potential allies and enemies, he is forced to action, with repercussions that stand to impact all Hairypeople"--Back cover.

Notes

"July 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]
