About the Author

Michael Jackson is College Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Indiana University. He is the author of many books of poetry, fiction, and anthropology, including, most recently, Paths Toward a Clearing: Radical Empiricism and Ethnographic Inquiry and Pieces of Music, a novel.


"Jackson has succeeded in the thoroughly anthropological enterprise of splicing together the wisdom of thinkers in Asian, Euro-American, and Judeo-Christian traditions with ordinary folk wisdom and wise statements of not-so-ordinary Walbiri. In his hands, all these strands converge on a timeless and highly contemporary, insistent, and essentially unanswerable question." - Paul Friedrich, American Ethnologist "Jackson provides qualitative ethnographic research and studies of 'home' with a model to be emulated. He casts his net wide and captures lived experience as well as words can harvest." - Paul Benson, Anthropology and Humanism "[An] important, exquisitely crafted book... notable for its innovative ethnography, philosophic acumen, and intricate portrayal of an aboriginal people." - Robert Desjarlais, American Anthropologist "[A] thoughtful study ... [A] kind of ethno-poetic essay about belonging and being uprooted in the contemporary world." - F. Allan Hanson, Cultural Survival Quarterly
