Reviews

"Sand Talk unpacks for us something originally genius about Indigenous thought, which has for too long been dismissed as archaic folk knowledge from old oral cultures of interest only to academics and fetishists. This book shows how vital and alive and essential Indigenous ways of being and thinking are. Yunkaporta is so smart, funny, and accessible. Everyone needs to read this."--Tommy Orange, bestselling author of There There
"An astonishing revelation of ancient Aboriginal wisdom as it applies to science and modern times. It's one of the best books I ever read, and I've been reading books for 80 years. There's nothing like it. It leaves you gasping. If you care about yourself, the world around you, and where you come from, you'd better read it. You won't put it down."--Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Dogs and Growing Old
"An exhilarating meditation on different ways of knowing and being. Sand Talk is playful, profound, and fiercely original."--Billy Griffiths, author of Deep Time Dreaming
"This is a book of cultural and philosophic intrigue. Read it."--Bruce Pascoe, author of Dark Emu
