Young Dark Emu: A Truer History (HB)

Author(s): Bruce Pascoe

Non-Fiction Picture Books | Visiting Authors & Illustrators | KRG 2019-20

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.
