Boomerang: Behind an Australian Icon

Front Cover
Wakefield Press, 1996 - Aboriginal Australians - 134 pages
From Aboriginal history to kitschy souvenirs to the shelves of your local sports store, boomerangs have a fascinating place in history and popular culture. Author Philip Jones draws on the world's largest boomerang collection at the South Australian Museum to describe the boomerang's traditional uses and its more recent flight into western culture.
