About This Item

Viking, New York, 1987. First Canadian edition. Condition: Near fine in near fine dust jacket. Small pencil markings on inside first page, dust jacket has very slight edge nicks at spine. More pictures available upon request.

First Canadian printing.

From the publisher: In this extraordinary new book, Bruce Chatwin has adapted a literary form common until the eighteenth century though rare in ours: a story of ideas in which two companions, traveling and talking together, explore the hopes and dreams that animate both them and the people they encounter...

Synopsis

Follow Chatwin on his journey into the 'Red Centre' of Australia. Part autobiography, part story, part history, part anthropology. Teaches us how Aboriginal Australians perceive their landscapes, and negotiate with each other in that vast, nomadic environment.
