It is the belief of the Australian Aboriginal people that long ago the earth was soft and had no form. Deserts, mountains lakes, and prairies were created by the animals.

Let young Mirri take your hand, and journey along with him as he learns about his heritage, his people's past, and his place in the future, while learning the stories of Dreamtime.

In graceful prose and elegant painting - some that echo Aboriginal rock art - Paul Morin tells a story of friendship, tradition, and dreaming that makes a faraway world seem very close.
