Publisher's Summary

Young Dark Emu: A Truer History asks young listeners to consider a different version of Australia's history pre-European colonisation.

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 listeners. 

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 listeners 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.
