Description

A rare, personal insight into the traditional teachings of an elder of the Yuin people (South Coast, NSW). 'Uncle' Max, as he is widely known, has been sharing his cultural knowledge for over 30 years - in that time taking more than 6000 people from all walks of life onto country and explaining Aboriginal ways. This book's content is drawn from extensive interviews with Uncle Max, who states that the teachings he reveals are 'the living treasures of my life'. Uncle Max provides simple and clear understandings into Aboriginal culture for people from all nationalities. His teachings cover their Creation Dreaming, bush lore, foods, healing, laws and punishment, spirituality and the significance of relationship to land. In passing on traditional wisdom Uncle Max focuses on three truths: See the land...the beauty; Hear the land...the story; Feel the land...the spirit.
