Summary:
  • "Woven through Bob Randall's story like the Rainbow Serpent is a clear account of the Aboriginal worldview and philosophy. With great simplicity, he explains the Aboriginal principles of belief including the network of responsibilities binding all things together and its connections with the Dreaming, place, family and relationships and the spirit or soul. He links Aboriginal and Christian beliefs, and draws parallels with other world religions such as Buddhism. Bob is one of the Stolen Generation and his song "My brown skin baby they take him away" has become a major rallying cry for the Stolen Generation." - back cover.
