Publisher's Summary

This is the story of one of Australia's first true heroes Pemulwuy. A proud and feared Aboriginal warrior, Pemulwuy leads an uncompromising twelve-year war against British colonial oppression and makes the supreme sacrifice in order to guide his people to safety.

Most histories of Australia start with the First Fleet and the hard times the colonists had with the climate and unruly convicts. Very few mention what really happened or the blood that was spilled in the wars never spoken of.

Pemulwuy, a Bidjigal man, unites the neighboring peoples, runaway convicts, bushrangers, and an escaped African known as Black Caesar in a guerilla war that pushes the invading English to the brink. This novel was conceived out of Pemulwuy's legend and the historical events between 1788 and 1802. It is a story that all Australians should know.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Mind blowing - Exceptionally well written and read

This is a book that all Australians should listen to or read. To think I have lived my whole life in Eora (Sydney), and have had no idea about any of this history is quite alarming. It is incredible to think that where I am currently writing this review at Coogee Beach, Pemulwuy may have shared footsteps on the same sand. Highly recommend.
