“Even yet the great majority of people do not realize that the culture and social customs of the Australian Aborigines are a unique survival from the distant past. What to us is only too often a treeless, desert waste, where the mirage mocks the weary traveller, is to them a homeland with a story or legend attached to every feature.
In the fascinating pages of Brown Men and Red Sand the author takes us back into the remote past, and enables us to share in daily life of a Stone Age people.”
