This series by Mountford and Roberts are beautifully illustrated with gorgeous haunting paintings. I have the original editions and the Dreamtime stories come from all over Australia. ( )

The subtitle of the book is "Australian Aboriginal Myths in Paintings by Ainslie Roberts". The author, Charles Mountford, is an ethnologist who enlisted the help of artist Ainslie Roberts to illustrate the traditional stories of the native people of Australia. How close the author's interpretations are to the true meanings of the aborigines, i cannot say, but it is good that someone has taken the time to record this unique culture in a way that a non-aborigine can experience it.
