After reading the first copy I had purchased, my and opinion was, that this book should be,and certainly by now, standard and mandatory reading in every Australian school. Have reordered since gifting the first copy. As an older Australian, I feel sad and angry that it seems we were most certainly deprived of information of the first nation and peoples of this country. Such a wealth of knowledge and wisdom which sustained their great culture and this land for many thousands of years. To Bruce Pascoe, many thanks for this amazing insight and valuable information.
