Summary: Hetti Perkins, who stars in the prime-time ABC TV series by the same name, takes readers on a personal journey of discovery into a world of ideas and the imagination of leading Aboriginal artists around Australia. She travels from the startlingly beautiful landscapes of remote Arnhem land to Sydney and from saltwater country to the desert heartlands of Central Australia.

Lavishly illustrated, this companion book to the prime-time ABC TV series in Australia of the same name captures the remarkable energy and diversity of Aboriginal art.
