Along the Waterways: Dreamtime Mysteries by Jenni Barnett
In the sequel to Native Companions, Gran Yan, the tree of memories, continues narrating history about the traditional landowners of Yaraan Grove, the Booran clan, named after the pelican. After a long separation from their homeland due to fire and drought, the small community returns to Yaraan Grove, where the firstborn infant in their territory is named Mullawanda as a tribute to the great eagle Mullawaa, which guided the travellers safely home.
During his development, Mullawanda proves to have intelligence far beyond his people, and coupled with an adventurous spirit, his journeys and the people he meets lead him into some intriguing situations, involving many fascinating people. This seven-part novel involves a number of indigenous clans that congregate at social gatherings, where tribal priests commune with ancestral spirits, sharing their legends with the audience. Many dreamtime legends unfold about their departed people, and a number of compelling mysteries are solved. The key to Gran Yan’s knowledge about such far-distant adventures is unlocked in the final chapter of this seven-part book.
About The Author...
Jenni Barnett was born and raised in South Australia. During her college education at Glenelg, the author developed an interest in archaeology and indigenous societies. Further to an extensive nursing career, Jennifer embarked on studies in traditional medicine with which she is still involved.
As a registered Traditional Western and Chinese Medicine practitioner, the author has done considerable research into early indigenous cultures. While enjoying creative writing and drawing, she decided to combine the two art forms and incorporate them in a traditional, pre-European setting.
During her youth, Jenni spent considerable time working in remote regions of Central Australia, where she learned about many aspects of Aboriginal culture. She developed a respect for certain Aboriginal people of the time, whom were still practising certain traditional ways of living, including bush foods and medicines as well as arts and crafts. The author is particularly fascinated by the ability of Australian indigenous bush-men to access a higher sense, or instinct. Their survival skills in remote regions of Australia where early pioneers often perished are emphasized in her writing.
As a semi-retired traditional medicine practitioner, Jenni resides with her husband in Queensland Coastal region, dividing her time between writing, sketching and her health practice. Along with her husband she has spent countless hours establishing a bird friendly environment by cultivating native plants and an eco-friendly environment.
