A fictional account of an American woman's four-month odyssey through the Australian Outback with the region's native people shares a message about living in harmony with the world around

Mutant Message Down Under is the fictional account of an American woman's spiritual odyssey through outback Australia. An underground bestseller in its original self-published edition, Marlo Morgan's powerful tale of challenge and endurance has a message for us all.

Summoned by a remote tribe of nomadic Aborigines to accompany them on walkabout, the woman makes a four-month-long journey and learns how they thrive in natural harmony with the plants and animals that exist in the rugged lands of Australia's bush. From the first day of her adventure, Morgan is challenged by the physical requirements of the journey -- she faces daily tests of her endurance, challenges that ultimately contribute to her personal transformation.

By traveling with this extraordinary community, Morgan becomes a witness to their essential way of being in a world based on the ancient wisdom and philosophy of a culture that is more than 50,000 years old.

It is advised that you do an internet search : "Helping Yourself: Marlo Morgan and the Fabrication of Aboriginal Culture.
By Cath Ellis"
The book has infuriated many Australians in it's lack of authenticity. It was first published as non-fiction, more recently as fiction. It is very disappointing to realize that an author can mislead readers about a story and her qualifications.

"Dream time". A way to "see" time that most people are not used to. Blows my mind. That's what I like most about this book--a different way to think about such a common thing. Fascinating!

A great read for those who know there is more to life than what we perceive.
