Moth Hunters of the Australian Capital Territory takes the reader on a fascinating guided tour to a vanished way of life and allows us to see our surroundings through new eyes.
This immensely readable work is the most authoritative and up-to-date account of Aboriginal traditional life and sites in the Canberra region. The title derives from the annual feasting on the Bogong moth which took place every summer on the summits of the Australian Alps. The booklet relates particularly to what is now the Australian Capital Territory, but also to the south-eastern highlands or Southern Uplands of New South Wales and Victoria.
It is written for the general reader, but specialists will also find it a valuable summary of recent archaeological and ethnographic work, with full references for further reading.
