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

  • 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.

    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.

A history we must teach

Australia's First Peoples were not only the best hunters and gatherers, they farmed the land, built dams and wells, stored food and built and settled in villages. This life is described through the eyes of early settlers, farmers and explorers. A wonderful account of our history.
