Tide Lines provides a multi-facetted study of the music culture of the Whitsunday Islands (off Queensland, Australia) from the period of initial European contact through to the present. The book details the manner in which a series of performers (the original Ngaro inhabitants, Torres Straight Islanders, Euro-Australians and Maori and Cook Islanders) have contributed to the development of the region's music culture. Individual chapters also analyse related topics, such as the music culture of Palm Island in the 1920s-1930s and the production of the 1935 feature film White Death. The book is 203 pages long, illustrated, with Bibliography and Index.
