AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'History told so well it gives us a better idea of who we are – and who we are likely to become.

'Don Watson’s The Story of Australia is a modern history of our nation that integrates new understandings about Indigenous Australia and looks to the future, asking: where will we go from here?

'In clear, succinct language that both children and adults will appreciate, Watson guides readers from the ancient lands of Gondwana, through human settlement, colonisation and waves of migration, to the challenges facing our diverse nation today.

'Each era is brought to life in a series of beautifully illustrated spreads that capture a particular event or development – or give a snapshot of ordinary Australians at the time. He covers the familiar and iconic – Burke and Wills, Ned Kelly and the Eureka Stockade – but also the lesser known, such as Daisy Bates and the Coniston massacres. Each chapter ends with a profile of a person, from the oldest Australian ever discovered, Mungo Woman, to pop icon Kylie Minogue.

'The Story of Australia will be treasured by children and families for years to come.'
