The Songlines

The Songlines by Bruce Chatwin

The Songlines
by Bruce Chatwin (also sold as just Songlines)
Beautiful and descriptive prose about Aboriginals and Australia certainly, but also about much larger themes of humanity. The overall story and the intermixed tales that populate the book are often humorous, always engaging, and illustrate ideas and conclusions culminating from Chatwin's wide travels and scholarly musings.
An Oz classic, I just recently read it and liked it so much I went immediately upon completion to get another of his books.

Francis, Jason, Jen & Lisa - might want to check it out prior to your Oz trip. Would add a rich level of meaning to your Uluru experiences.
