Young Dark Emu - A Truer History
The highly-anticipated junior version of Bruce Pascoe’s multi award-winning book.
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 readers.
Bruce Pascoe uses the diaries of early explorers and colonists to show us 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.
Young Dark Emu — A Truer History asks young readers to consider a different version of Australia’s history pre-European colonisation.
