An introduction to Australia’s rich, indigenous culture, this pocket-sized guide is an invaluable resource for learning about the 60,000-year-old history of the country. Containing everything from history and rarely seen photographs to information on traveling respectfully, the content is written by indigenous people and follows their cultural protocols and ethics. Presented in a nonchronological approach, the guide is as much a reference as it is the story of identity and continuity.
