ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Although conceived as a catalogue accompanying the major exhibition at he National Museum, this splendid book is also a special record of one of the most important Indigenous story sequences. It aims to both share and preserve knowledge, and vibrantly documents artworks and the stories of the sisters who flee from one water source to the next, pursued by a lustful shape-shifter. Spinetinglingly beautiful – and an important resource for anyone who wishes to learn about the spiritual, cultural and ecological pathways of this extensive songline. Lindy Jones

-----

This book is a companion to the National Museum of Australia's blockbuster Indigenous-led exhibition, Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters.

It explores the history and meaning of songlines, the Dreaming or creation tracks that crisscross the Australian continent, of which the Seven Sisters songline is one of the most extensive.

Through stunning artworks (many created especially for the exhibition), story, and in-depth analysis, the book will provide the definitive resource for those interested in finding out more about these complex pathways of spiritual, ecological, economic, cultural, and ontological knowledge - the stories `written in the land'.
