A fascinating account of a people from the far north Kimberley of Western Australia who have experienced upheaval on a monumental scale. Chalarimeri tells of the customs of his ‘people from the sunrise side’ and what he calls ‘the clash of two cultures’. His views on contemporary issues that are impacting on his beloved country – native title, appropriation of rock art, Aboriginal health and the effects of tourism on the pristine Kimberley wilderness are compelling.
