Description

Aboriginal legends are pictures in word-form of Aboriginal life, showing life from their point of view. Legends deal with religion, the origins of things, and acts of bravery performed by stout-hearted warriors. They convey a vast range of cultural knowledge including folkways, values and beliefs. This collection includes legends meant to entertain, teach or pass on moral values. There are four books in this series of legends. In addition, there is a teacher’s handbook to assist in the use of legends in the curriculum.
