Aboriginal Australians

Norman Tindale & H.A. Lindsay

“Aboriginal Australians are a simple, hunting people, still living with the aid of tools of the Old Stone Age. They show us how our own early ancestors may have lived, worked and played, long ago; and also provide us with a guide as to how prehistoric peoples of other lands developed their cultures. they also show us how the human mind developed and exercised the power to think and plan while man was still a hunter and had not yet learned to live either as a farmer or as a city-dweller.

Much of our present-day knowledge of these people has been published only in scientific papers, which very few have the opportunity to read; and, as a result, many fallacies abut the original inhabitants of Australia are still current.

In this book, two well-qualified authors have collaborated to present a concise, factual summary of what is now definitely known about the Australian aborigines.”
