Interesting books:

For a book on the early days of the pearling industry in Broome find a copy of Ian L Idriess’s  Forty Fathoms Deep.


For readers interested in learning more of the Aboriginal Art of the Kimberley, I recommend The Lost World of the Kimberley by Ian Wilson. This is available in print or eBook formats.


Another very interesting book is Bradshaw Art of the Kimberley by Graham L Walsh.  As it was a limited edition print copies are expensive to acquire. The author also produced a number of other works on the subject.


For anyone looking to visit the Kimberley, Destination Kimberley by Birgit Bradtke is a great guide and full of information for those planning on driving in the region. Check out the website at www.kimberleyaustralia.com  for an eBook version.

The fascinating Bradshaw, or Gwion Gwion, rock art of the remote Kimberley region of Australia poses many unanswered questions.
