Songlines

Cath:

After reading Kerry’s blog and watching the link to the Message Stick episode, I recalled a fantastic book that I read years ago by Bruce Chatwin who was an English novelist and travel writer. The book is called The Songlines (1987) and presents an interesting view of how Aboriginal people think and relate to their land.  His thesis that language started as song is quite intriquing. I know most of the links so far in this blog are to electronic resources but I figure we shouldn’t get bogged down with technology.
