In the middle of the Australian continent, a huge sandstone rock rises more than a thousand feet from the flat desert floor. Formerly known as Ayers Rock, this imposing landmark is now called Uluru, the name given to it by the Anangu, the Aboriginal people who live on the land around it. A site of ongoing geological processes and exceptional beauty, it is unlike any other place in the world.
My book, ULURU: Australia's Aboriginal Heart, illustrated with photographs by my husband Art, is now available in the StarWalk Kids Media digital library. Inspired by a trip to Australia's "Red Center," the book focuses on the natural history around this geological wonder. You can read about our visit to Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park at my travel blog The Intrepid Tourist.
ULURU is also available as a Kindle book on Amazon.
