Written by Archaeologist Peter McAllister, this book follows one man's journey to discover the secret land of the Pygmies, in Northern Australia. After a visit to Far North Queensland, McAllister found evidence that Pygmy Aboriginal peoples did live in Australia's rainforests. Quirky and insightful, Pygmonia will take you on a epic journey to answer some of the questions about Australian History.

A recent chapter in the history wars has returned a colonial-era mystery to the limelight- the existence of several tribes of Pygmy Aboriginal peoples in the Cairns and Yarrabah Peninsula regions in Queensland. Despite a general belief in their extinction, their descendants still live around Cairns, as archaeologist Peter McAllister found on a recent research trip.
