Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

This book describes in rich and absorbing detail the Channel Country world of the author. In the midst of this strange and attractive area lies an old cattle station 'Mooraberrie' owned by her parents from the early nineties, and where Alice Duncan, was born and grew up. 'Where Strange Gods Call' tells of her love for this, then, remote spot, The Kirrenderri of the Aboriginal tribes that once roamed and had their being there. It

portrays adventures and experiences unusual in any language and in any walk of life. It is a narrative which threads its way through a vast and colourful canvas, which divulges as many secrets of the countries mysteries and Aboriginal people as it recounts exciting encounters with wild cattle, sudden floods and a wild untamed land. 244 x 155mm., pp. xxxiv, 22 (preliminaries - mainly pictorial), 325, black & white and colour plates, map, line illustrations, Glossary of Aboriginal Words, Glossary of Reptiles, Animals and Birds. Hard cover in dust jacket. Contents, no inscriptions; dust jacket, medium rubbed on back, no tears or chips. NEAR FINE.
