The overall message of the book makes up for the poor writing. Don't spend your energy wondering whether it is truth or fiction, spend it taking in the messages within the book. The story, fiction or not, provides messages of cultural understanding, simpler life, acceptance and needs vs. wants. These are reminders that we as a society can benefit from.

Rene Friberg, August 16, 2007 (view all comments by Rene Friberg)
This is a controversial book.
Did she, or didn't she? that's the question.
The book itself is an amalgamation of new age, native American, and paganistic ideals, all blended into an obscure, unknown Aboriginal tribe in Australia. Some of the topography and botany is prone to error, but the main message of the book is the same message we've heard from many other voices...
What the world needs now is to realize that we are all One.
I don't think that the author deliberately tries to be racist in her remarks concerning indigenous cultures, but it can be hard to overlook at times.
