Author(s): Hill, Barry
'A group of men - chanting with the enthusiasm that made them forget age and weakness and becoming young again in spirit, the rising and falling of the chant melody, like the breathing that gives us life what an unforgettable scene!' Thus wrote T G H Strehlow in 1935, as he began "Songs Of Central Australia". This book tells his story.
Shortlisted for Age Book of the Year: Non-fiction 2003.
