Description
Information
Songlines emerge as invisible pathways connecting up all over Australia: ancient tracks made of songs which tell of the creation of the land. The Aboriginals' religious duty is ritually to travel the land, singing the Ancestors' songs: singing the world into being afresh. 'The Songlines' is not Chatwin simply describing another culture: he is making cautious assertions about human nature. A quite remarkable book.
