Hunters and Trackers of the Australian Desert
The peoples of the deserts in the centre of Australia adapted to one of the most marginal environments on earth, with no technology to assist them other than what they could make with their own hands. The book describes the hunting lifestyle of desert people both before European contact and today. It discusses the art of tracking in some detail, and shows it is part of a body of knowledge, which includes an intimate understanding of animal behaviour, an excellent memory and a faultless sense of direction.
