THE 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 contact between Europeans and Indigenous Australians, through to the Uluru Statement, it offers an insight into the life and experiences of the world's oldest surviving culture. The resilience and adaptability of Aboriginal people over millennia is one of the great human stories of all time. Josephine Flood answers the questions that Australians and visitors often ask about Aboriginal Australia: Where did the Aboriginal people come from and when? How did they survive in Australia's harsh environment? What was the traditional role of indigenous women? What are land rights? How do Aboriginal people maintain their culture today? And many more. This bestselling account has been updated and is fascinating reading for anyone who wants to discover Aboriginal Australia. '. . . an intriguing and accessible history for anyone, from overseas visitors to Australians . . .'
