From the author of Dark Emu brings us the highly anticipated junior version - Young Dark Emu. Bruce Pascoe collects the diaries of early explorers and colonists to show us the Australia where Aboriginal people did build houses, dams and farmed the land. Tying together research and first person accounts, this book shows a vital piece of Australian History and is a must-read for all.

Books Official Stockist

Using the accounts of early European explorers, colonists and farmers, Bruce Pascoe compellingly argues for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer label for pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians. He allows the reader to see Australia as it was before Europeans arrived — a land of cultivated farming areas, productive fisheries, permanent homes, and an understanding of the environment and its natural resources that supported thriving villages across the continent
