The Last of the Nomads
ISBN:0 94920 687 3
Warri and Yatungka were believed to be the last of the Mandildjara tribe of desert nomads to live permanently in the traditional way. Their deaths in the late 1970s marked the end of a tribal lifestyle that stretched back more than 30,000 years. Originally published in 1983 and now in its fifth printing, The Last of the Nomads tells of an extraordinary journey in search of Warri and Yatungka. The intriguing story of their rescue and how they survived alone for the previous thirty years in the unrelenting western Gibson Desert region of Australia makes absorbing reading. A documentary film based on this story has been shown on SBS television, and this new edition includes a short contribution from the author about his involvement in the making of the film.
