ISBN: 1922142433

Condition: New


2016 NSW Premier's Literary Awards Indigenous Writers Prize Joint Winner! Dark Emu puts forward an argument for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer tag for precolonial Aboriginal Australians. The evidence insists that Aboriginal people right across the continent were using domesticated plants, sowing, harvesting, irrigating and storing – behaviours inconsistent with the hunter-gatherer tag. Gerritsen and Gammage in their latest books support this premise but Pascoe takes this further and challenges the hunter-gatherer tag as a convenient lie. Almost all the evidence comes from the...

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world's last great wilderness areas. Its unique environment supports an astonishing and almost unequalled biodiversity, from microscopic plankton to whales.

Since its genesis in 1976, Midnight Oil - fronted by the charismatic and passionate Peter Garrett until his departure from the band in late 2002 - has at various times been synonymous with beer-barn angst, green political activism, indigenous advocacy and musical nonconformism.
