Summary
"In a spectacularly beautiful and remote corner of northern Australia, a handful of people are living in the twilight of their culture. After 40,000 years, the Gandiu Aborigines are transferring the knowledge of their mysterious culture to what may be their last generation. Travel to their distant land to meet the tribal elders, explore the ancient myths of the Dreamtime, and see the extraordinary wildlife that inspires their sacred rock paintings."--Container
