Summary For thousands of years the Ngarinyin Aboriginal culture has existed with almost total division of resposibility between sexes enabling both to respect the power, wisdom, and essentiality of the other. In this book the author, after a 25 year association with these people, draws useful parallels to benefit gender-troubled Western society
