Created under the guidance of cultural custodians, traditional owners and artists, Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters explores the history and meaning of the Dreaming or creation tracks that crisscross the Australian continent, of which the Seven Sisters songlines are among the most extensive.

Through artworks, stories and in-depth analysis, this book provides an important resource for those interested in knowing more about these complex pathways of spiritual, ecological, economic, cultural and ontological knowledge — the stories ‘written in the land’.
