A collection of stories by

 
 
Tens of thousands of years before Tutankhamen was buried in his pyramid, the Yorta-Yorta people - one of Australia's aboriginal tribes - told the stories in this volume beside the campfires and waterholes of the Australian desert. Here readers discover how Great Mother Snake created the world and filled it with plants and creatures, what makes Frog croak, why Kangaroo has a pouch, and just what it is that makes Platypus so special. Aboriginal artist and storyteller Francis Firebrace provides the evocative art that has made him known throughout Australia and beyond.
