Original Australians The Story of the Aboriginal People
The Original Australians tells the story of Australian Aboriginal history and society from its distant beginnings to the present day.
From the wisdom and paintings of the Dreamtime, to the first contacts between Europeans and indigenous Australians, right through to the Uluru Statement from the Heart, it offers an insight into the life and experiences of the world's oldest culture. The resilience and adaptability of Aboriginal people over millennia is one of the great human stories of all time.
This rich account aims to understand both black and white perspectives and is fascinating reading for anyone who wants to discover Aboriginal Australia. This second edition is fully revised and updated.
