The highly-anticipated junior version of Bruce Pascoe's multi award-winning book.


Bruce Pascoe has collected a swatche of literary awards for Dark Emu and now he has brought together the research and compelling first person accoutns in a book for younger readers.

Using the account of early European explorers, conlonists and farmers, Bruce Pascoe complellingly argues for a reconsideration of the hunter-gaherer 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 understading of the environment and its natural resources that supported thriving villages across the continet. Young Dark Emu — A Truer History ask young readers to consider a different version of Australia's history pre-European colonisation.
