Summary
Includes brief statements that the Australian continent was isolated very early in the world's history, so the Indigenous people had obviously lived in isolation for long ages, had no cultivated plants, the bow and arrow were unknown to them, they were nomads, and most of the 52,000 surviving live in the arid central section of the great plateau p. 13; provides an overview of Indigenous history, culture and lifestyle p. 171-172
