Young Dark Emu

Young Dark Emu

  • Description

    Bruce Pascoe has collected a swathe of literary awards for Dark Emu and now he has brought together the research and compelling first person accounts in a book for younger readers. This is also suitable for readers who would like a precis of Dark Emu.

    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.

    Young Dark Emu - A Truer History asks young readers to consider a different version of Australia's history pre-European colonisation.
