“Dreamtime Man” Book
“Dreamtime Man’s” lyrical rhyming verses take children and adults back in time, to how Australian Aboriginal tribes lived for tens of thousands of years. Their belief in the Dreamtime shaped their lives. What happened to these vibrant people when they first came in contact with white settlers had tragic consequences, and their culture and way of life was changed forever. Finke’s story is based on a fascinating part of Australian history. I had the opportunity to illustrate this amazing book and it was fascinating trying to capture the essence of the Dreamtime Spirits, and the bush and outback areas of Australia where the aboriginals thrived.
