            Dreamtime: An Aboriginal Odyssey (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Clayton, Nigel Brian James

            This is the story of a man on walkabout, trekking the centre of Australia some 60,000 years ago. His adventures open the door to myths and legends of Aboriginal society as never read before. This story is a true eye-opener, an odyssey which, as per Dreamtime, will exist for etern...ity. 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 some sacred meanings. I can only hope that I have created no ill-will, for my intensions 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. The main character in the book, Nalon, is a fabrication; a fabrication created in order to achieve my goal. I hope this is clearly understood. WARNING! Kulinma! Ngulakujaku-kula! This book might contain names of people who have since departed this world.

            Few mere mortals have ever embarked on such bold and heart-stirring adventures, overcome myriad monstrous perils, or outwitted scheming vengeful gods, quite as stylishly and triumphantly as Greek heroes. In this companion to his bestselling Mythos, Stephen Fry brilliantly retells... these dramatic, funny, tragic and timeless tales. Join Jason aboard the Argo as he quests for the Golden Fleece. See Atalanta - who was raised by bears - outrun any man before being tricked with golden apples. Witness wily Oedipus solve the riddle of the Sphinx and discover how Bellerophon captures the winged horse Pegasus to help him slay the monster Chimera. Heroes is the story of what we mortals are truly capable of - at our worst and our very best.
