Overview

Australia has an appeal that is nowhere to be found in this world. The birds and beasts--kangaroo, platypus, emu, rough grotesques of Nature, and the scenic beauty make Australia the most wonderful continent on our planet. The natives were a race without a history, far more antique than Egypt, nearer the beginnings than any other people. Their weapons are the most primitive: those of the extinct Tasmanians were actually palæolithic.

Most of the Australian folklore is in fact aboriginal folklore. The most attractive and fundamentally different characteristic of the Australian folk tales is the names of the characters. To a western reader the names might sound somewhat odd. This book has a great collection of the Australian folk tales to delight and inform every group of readers.
