Synopsis: "Dream Road" is a work on the Quinkin art body - one of he largest and most spectacular groups of rock paintings in the world. covering the caves and cliffs of the Gulf of Carpentaria the paintings range in age from 5,000 to over 13,000 years. Percy Trezise, who rediscovered the paintings discusses the history and significance of the works. His close involvement with the Aboriginal people of north Queensland allows him a rare insight into the religious and cultural background of the paintings. This book is illustrated and designed for those interested in Australian art, history and culture and for tourists visting Quinkin country. Also aimed at students, it trys to shatter the myth "terra nullius" and argues that Aboriginal people have lived there far longer than previously estimated.

About the Author: Percy Trezise has been studying Quinkin rock art for over thirty years and is the leading authority on the subject. He and Aboriginal artist Dick Roughsey have collaborated to write the popular Quinkin series of children's books. Tresize lives in Cairns, Qld.
