An amazing Aboriginal Elder, Banjo tells of traditions like caring for the land, taking only what you need, sharing with others and a deep psychic connection to one’s Elders.

Once published, the story became an Australian best-seller entitled, “Wisdom Man Banjo Clarke as told to Camilla Chance”. The book is now in its second edition from Penguin-Random House.

Banjo lived from 1922-2000 and his funeral was the largest of any ever held in Warrnambool and district, Australia.
