“This series has been one of the great successes in Australian publishing and has sold close to a quarter-million copies.
Dreamtime Heritage is the latest in this series which interprets Aboriginal myths in paintings, text, and drawings.  The paintings are in the style which prompted the famous anthropologist Charles P. Mountford to say, “They are unique.  No Australian artist has painted images like this… he has evolved his own techniques to communicate his deep involvement with Aboriginal mythology.
Melva Jean Roberts, the wife of the artist, provides a warm and sympathetic tex.  The text for previous books in the series was written by Dr Mountford, but the pressure of other work prevented him from collaborating with Mr Roberts on this volume.”
