Australians All: A History of Growing Up from the Ice Age to the Apology
Illustrated by Ken Searle
Allen & Unwin, 2013
Australians All encompasses the history of our continent from the Ice Age to the Apology, from the arrival of the First Fleet to the Mabo Judgement.
While the chronological narrative takes in the significant events of our national story, accounts of the lives of real young Australians invite readers to engage with it in a unique and personal way.
In this lavishly illustrated volume, new artwork by Ken Searle flows seamlessly between reproductions of historical photographs and cartoons and paintings by Aboriginal and colonial artists.
Meticulously researched, beautifully written and highly readable, Australians All helps us understand who we are, and how we belong to the land we all share. It also shows us who we might be.
