Last of the nomads - W J Peasley

Warri and Yatungka were believed to be the last of the Mandildjara tribes of desert nomads to live permanently in the traditional way. Their deaths in the late 1970s marked the end of a tribal lifestyle that stretched more than 30,000 years. The Last of the Nomads tells of an extraordinary journey in search of Warri and Yatungka. The intriguing story of their rescue and how they survived alone for the previous thirty years in the unrelenting western Gibson desert region of Australia makes an absorbing reading.
