How do you live in a landscape that no longer belongs to you? Denis Byrne and Maria Nugent show how Aboriginal people in NSW 'possess' their local landscapes by imprinting them with their life stories, histories, memories and emotions. In their minds and in their daily conversations they construct maps that are different from, but just as real, as the official maps produced by government and by tourism bodies.
This is a key text for students and practitioners of cultural heritage conservation, and for those working in the fields of Aboriginal, cross-cultural and oral history.
