The Edge of Memory: Ancient Stories, Oral Tradition & the Post-Glacial World description

In The Edge of Memory, Professor of Geography Patrick Nunn lays out evidence that the great oral histories of Indigenous societies were forerunners of Western physical science. His research demonstrates that the ancient culture and practices of Aboriginal Australia, and other traditions from around the globe, offer an unparalleled depth of knowledge about our physical world.  An intriguing account of our distant past and what Indigenous stories can teach us about our world today.
