Yiwara: Foragers of the Australian Desert

By Richard A. Gould; Nicholas Amorosi | Go to book overview

Annotated Bibliography
This bibliography includes nearly all the available sources on the Gibson Desert Aborigines and their Pitjantjara-speaking neighbors. In cases where the subject is not made entirely clear by the title, a brief note identifies the subject and other relevant matters. Although the Pitjantjara-speaking peoples of Australia have been well studied, no compact and complete ethnographic study of this group has yet been made. As this bibliography shows, knowledge about these Aborigines is probably more varied and scattered than is the case for any other Aboriginal group in Australia.
