This is one of the best available collections of Australian Aboriginal folklore. It was written for a popular audience, but the stories are retold with integrity, and not filtered, as was the case with similar books from this period. That said, the style of this book reflects Victorian sentimentality and, an occasional tinge of racism that may not sit well with some modern readers. Tales include: Dinewan The Emu, And Goomblegubbon The Bustard; The Galah, And Oolah The Lizard; Bahloo The Moon And The Daens; The Origin Of The Narran Lake; Gooloo The Magpie, And The Wahroogah; The Weeoonibeens And The Piggiebillah; Bootoolgah The Crane And Goonur The Kangaroo Rat, The Fire Makers; Weedah The Mocking Bird; The Gwineeboos The Redbreasts; and many more.

This book has 103 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1897.
