About this Item

Paperback. 184 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.4in.From the Aboriginal Burramatta clan to modern day Parramatta this is a tale about the changing face of Australias second settlement. A place steeped in history, where the sea water meets the freshwater and the EELs come to rest. Travellers from different worlds have always met here, fought here and survived here. From its convict beginnings and Aboriginal interactions, to the multinational and cultural diversity of today. The residents of Parramatta go about their lives with simple stories that intertwine in a soup bowl of dysfunctional relationships. The Matta is far from being a safe place; murder, fear and cruelty have always found a footing. Normal people are continually caught up in the realities of life. The common place for soul searching and relaxation is the lake, with its tranquil water and peaceful walks. It is a haven for good and evil that melds the nature of heroes, villains and the life of a giant lake bound eel. This is a colloquial yarn with a boys own twist that crosses the river of time. The settings are a Lake Reserve, a local pub and the streets of Parramatta. They blend together history, local issues and Dreamtime mysticism. All mixed with the life and love of a man and woman, whose feelings are woven by nature within the Heart of the Matta. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781743351215

About this title

Synopsis:

From the Aboriginal Burramatta clan to modern day Parramatta this is a tale about the changing face of Australia's second settlement. A place steeped in history, where the sea water meets the freshwater and the EEL's come to rest. Travellers from different worlds have always met here, fought here and survived here. From its convict beginnings and Aboriginal interactions, to the multinational and cultural diversity of today. The residents of Parramatta go about their lives with simple stories that intertwine in a soup bowl of dysfunctional relationships. The 'Matta' is far from being a safe place; murder, fear and cruelty have always found a footing. Normal people are continually caught up in the realities of life. The common place for soul searching and relaxation is the lake, with its tranquil water and peaceful walks. It is a haven for good and evil that melds the nature of heroes, villains and the life of a giant lake bound eel. This is a colloquial yarn with a 'boys own' twist that crosses the river of time. The settings are a Lake Reserve, a local pub and the streets of Parramatta. They blend together history, local issues and 'Dreamtime' mysticism. All mixed with the life and love of a man and woman, whose feelings are woven by nature within the 'Heart of the Matta'.
