Built on the land the Arrernte people call Mparntwe, Alice Springs is the place where caterpillar beings originated and where mountain ranges were formed by wild-dog fights. A town like Mparntwe takes you on a journey through Alice Springs that shows you how an Arrernte person sees the country. This new edition of the book originally called The Arrernte Landscape tells the stories of Altyerre, 'the Dreamtime', and describes the travels of the ancestral beings as they made the world. A map, illustrations and skyline drawings show you the ancestors' Dreaming tracks and the sites they created in the Alice Springs area.

Great guide about the correct indigenous names of places.


Great book for people in general who want to know own the first actual names of places around the centre of Australia.
