"Builds a scholarly picture of Aboriginal history so far missing."  —Courier Mail

"A history project so important it makes a little history of its own."  —Time Out Sydney

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is really informative, but the subject matter is a bit depressing. The paper is nice, relatively thick stock, semi-glossy. The photos are pretty high quality. The book is a bit big for most bookshelves, but great for coffeetables. The writing is great and the subject is interesting.
