Reviews

`An extraordinary invitation into the world of the Dreaming... Unheralded.' * Melissa Lucashenko *
'It was certainty that drove a bulldozer through the oldest and deepest philosophic statement on earth at Burrup Peninsula. Sand Talk offers no certainties and Tyson Yunkaporta is not a bulldozer driver. This is a book of cultural and philosophic intrigue. Read it.' * Bruce Pascoe *
'Radical ideas, bursting with reason.' * Tara June Winch *
'After two hundred years, Indigenous thinkers are claiming the right to interpret Aboriginal Australia. It is a revolutionary change: here, in this compelling book, are its first fruits.' * Nicolas Rothwell *
'An exhilarating meditation on different ways of knowing and being. Sand Talk is playful, profound and fiercely original.' * Billy Griffiths *
`A familiar Indigenous sense of humour and generosity of sharing knowledge makes this book enjoyable to read...Like Dark Emu, Yunkaporta's book will have people talking.' * Books+Publishing (starred review) *
'Tyson Yunkaporta's Sand Talk is an extraordinary reading experience. It's both philosophical and practical, and underpinned by a compassionate yet realistic humanity.' * Readings *
