This is the story of a man on walkabout, trekking the centre of Australia some 60,000 years

ago. The adventures open the door to myths and legends of Aboriginal society as never read

before. The myths, legends and wonders of Aboriginal society are many and vast, passed on

by word of mouth for tens of thousands of years.

If we assume that the 'religion' of these people dates back so far then we have to assume that

creatures such as the diprotodon, megalania, and thylacoleo, just to name a few, are forever

present in their myths and legend. But there are indicators to show that the religion does not

date back so far, or in the least, that religion was an on-going form of practice, for the dingo

which only dates back some 5,000 years] seems to be rather active in ritual and common

place amongst some myths and legends.

Whether these stories have changed over the years as word mouth is hard to secure as a

source of historical worth] or not, I have taken the liberty, whether justly or otherwise, to put

it into story form, so that there appears to be a more rudiment meaning to the entire

development of Aboriginal Dreamtime, which is an eternal way of life and carries with it

many sacred meanings.

I can only hope that I have created no ill-will, for my intentions are to provide others with the

joy of understanding in a way which is more effortless then simply passing over one myth

after another in a big thick book.
