For the Aboriginal people of Australia, the Dreaming is the beginning of the world but it is also yesterday, today and forever. From the Dreaming comes a rich and wonderful story which tells of the creation of earth, sun, moon and stars, why the animals look the way they do, how the Great Ancestor Spirits loved and looked after their people. In From the Dreaming, Jean Ellis has chosen a collection of stories from the different areas of Australia. these stories reflect the vivid imagination, strong sense of drama and the intimate understanding of nature that is characteristic of the Aboriginal people of Australia.
