Note
"This is how it is. Before creation time, there was a dead, silent, featureless plain extending unbroken to the horizon. Slumbering benneath the plain lay indeterminate forms of life. During creation time, they emerged. Although the newly created beings resembled creatures or plants in appearance, they behaved like human beings. They camped, make fire, dug for water, performed ceremonies and fought. Inexplicably, creation time came to an end and the mythical creatures died. However, every place in which one or another had carried our any task or featis now marked by a natural feature. Australian Aborigines are direct descendants of these creatures. Their is a belief in which what has happened in the past is happening now and will go on unchanged forever. This is how it is" -- cover title page
