    schema:reviewBody ""What do the artistic works of acclaimed author Tim Winton and eminent Ngarinyin lawman Bungal (David) Mowaljarlai have in common? According to Hannah Rachel Bell, they both reflect a sacred relationship with the natural world, the biological imperative of a male rite of passage, an emergent urban tribalism, and the fundamental role of story in the transmission of cultural knowledge." "In Bell's four-decade friendship with Mowaljarlai, she had to confront the cultural assumptions that sculpted her way of seeing. The journey was life changing. When she returned to teaching in 2001, Tim Winton's novels featured in the curriculum. She recognised and eerie familiarity between his works and those of Mowaljarlai, and thought Winton must have been influenced by traditional elders to express such an 'indigenous' perspective. She wrote him, and the result is four years of correspondence and an excavation of converging world views - exposed through personal memoir, letters, paintings and conversations - culminating in Storymen."--Jacket." ;
