The semi-abstract images ....display an eerie beauty that is alternately fascinating, inspiring and disturbing. -- Los Angeles Times

30 of 32 people found the following review helpful By Patrick Carroll VINE VOICE on March 24, 1998
Format: Paperback
This book is ok, I guess, but I have few criticisms. First, there are too many black-and-white photographs, making it hard to appreciate the pictures. Second, the text often gets out of sync. with the pictures, so you have to flick back and forth between text and pictures. Third, the book is just too small for the pictures it displays. I recommend "Songlines."

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on August 2, 1999
Format: Paperback
I found this book useful, rich and varied, covering many aspects of this beautiful artwork, intermixing the Dreamtime stories with information about the many different geographical regions, artists and forms of art with (admittedly) small but powerful reproductions.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Victor A. Grauer on October 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
This is a truly great book about a truly mind blowing development in the otherwise tepid (and too often phoney) world of contemporary art. Most of the artists represented are in my view among the greatest I've ever encountered, from any time or any place, anwhere. The fact that their work projects ancient traditions in a manner both faithful to those traditions and at the same time so original and vital is truly mind bending. Caruana's discussion of the work and explication of so many interesting and important details is highly instructive and enlightening. I recommend this book unequivocally to anyone with an eye and mind open to the possibilities of art and the power of symbolism.
