Chewings, Charles

A very detailed and intimate description of the life, personal and tribal, of the Central Australian Aboriginals; their characteristics, beliefs and superstitions; their tools and weapons; together with a discussion of the results of their contacts with the whites, their present condition and their probable future. Dr Chewings writes with the authority of personal knowledge gained by long, patient and acute observation in his travels in Central Australia from 1881 into the 1930s. A major work with photographs from the Spencer and Gillen expeditions. Out of print for 80 years.
