Synopsis

Cambridge Junior History: Australia and its People by Philip Cummins

Australia and its Peoples covers the period from the earliest inhabitants of Australia, over 40,000 years ago, to 1900. It explores the significant features of the various indigenous societies that have existed over this time, paying particular attention to everyday life, customs and beliefs, art and cultural expression, and economic and technological features such as trade and land management. Australia and its Peoples also looks at the arrival of the white colonists, the process of colonisation and its legacy for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians, and explores the question of an 'Australian identity'. The book is full colour throughout, draws on a wide range of sources and contains learning outcomes and focus issues. The activities will help to build students' historical skills while ensuring that history remains fun!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
