Broken Song by Barry Hill
Book DescriptionThe biography of T. G. H. Strehlow and Aboriginal possession. A group of men chanting with the enthusiasm that made them forget age & weakness & becoming young again in spirit the rising and falling of the chant melody, like the breathing that gives us life what an unforgettable scene!' Thus wrote T. G.H. Strehlow in 1935, as he began his life work, Songs of Central Australia, acclaimed as one of the great books of world literature. Prize-winning poet and historian, Barry Hill, with exclusive access to Strehlow's diaries, has written a major work about the troubled man who grew up on the Hermannsburg mission, became the first Patrol Officer of Central Australia, called himself the last of the Aranda', and compulsively collected secret-sacred objects and images. Broken Song straddles a century of Australian history, from the race wars on the frontier to the modern era of aboriginal land rights, tracking Strehlow's creative and tragic life in translation.

Peacemongers, Hardback (October 2014)
In his first major prose work since 2002's Broken Song, Barry Hill has written an epic -- a travel book, a history book, a peace book. His odyssey begins with a pilgrimage to Bodhi Gaya in India, where the Buddha received enlightenment and ends after he reaches Nagasaki, Japan, in the aftermath of its atomic bomb
Lines for Birds, Paperback (March 2011)
An explosion of lush images, a collaboration between two distinguished artists - painter John Wolseley and poet Barry Hill - both long fascinated by nature's beauty and power. This collection captures the very essence of Bird - its energy, inquisitiveness and daring - proof that these creatures suggest new ways of telling stories about the Earth.
Inland Sea, Paperback (September 2001)» View all books by Barry Hill
"Little Buddha" And the Buddha by the pool. My small one, of soap stone. A smooth semblance of heaven within the mountain. Gentle as a duck feather floating under the full moon. It saw. We heard. The gorge, wide as protoplasmic Dreaming, listened to all the old words seethed open into ancestry.
