Hunting techniques vary among the forest peoples, and include bows and arrows, nets and spear

The importance of the forest as their spiritual and physical home, and as the source of their religion, livelihood, medicine and cultural identity cannot be overstated.

Traditionally, small communities moved frequently through distinct forest territories, gathering a vast range of forest products, collecting wild honey and exchanging goods with neighbouring settled societies.

OPAL TREASURE TROVE IN AUSSIE OUTBACK
Beneath the sun-baked surface of Australia’s ‘red centre’ is a fabulous treasure trove – the world’s largest deposits of opal. Check out this YouTube clip, which starts in Andamooka where you’ll descend into the cavernous depths of an opal mine, then visit an opal miner's graveyard where picks, shovels and steel helmets have been cemented to the headstones.

Next the clip takes you to the opal mining town of Coober Pedy, where people live in amazing underground houses. In my upcoming novel SORRY TIME, there’s a bloody clash inside one of these subterranean homes, known as ‘dugouts.’ It takes place in stygian darkness after the power is turned off. And to add to the mayhem, a deadly taipan is on the loose inside the dugout! Look out for SORRY TIME in book stores and online from early 2017.
