‘Songlines’ or ‘Dreaming Tracks’ are what Europeans call the invisible pathways that meander all over Australia. From such lines Chatwin has been able to trace a great deal about an Aboriginal culture as complex as it is different from our own.

Description

Bruce Chatwin provides a fascinating background to indigenous Australian life.

The songlines are the invisible pathways that criss-cross Australia, tracks connecting communities and following ancient boundaries. Along these lines, Aboriginals passed the songs which revealed the creation of the land and the secrets of its past. In this magical account, Chatwin recalls his travels across the length and breadth of Australia seeking to find the truth about the songs and unravel the mysteries of their stories.
