Overview This is an important book, whose content is unlike any other. It is about indigenous peoples and their traditional and contemporary ways of living. Elders is a series of chapters authored by tribal elders from around Australia. Each chapter describes an important aspect of contemporary tribal life, and the elder speaks on behalf of his or her tribe - explaining what rituals they hold to, what understandings of the world they have. They talk about subjects such as The Land, The Sea, Spirit, Law, Family, Healing, Ceremony, Song, and Hunting. Peter McConchie has travelled to the far corners of the continent to listen and record what elders have to say. They speak simply and movingly, and visually stunning photography supports their words. Elders is a book to appeal to the widest possible audience. It is the most representative account of Aboriginal people's lives, culture and beliefs in book form.
