In 1787 the peoples of Australia weren't easily residing in a undying ‘Dreamtime’, following the seasons, and looking ahead to colonisation via Britain in 1788.

Nick Brodie makes use of the sailors, writers, scientists, and different viewers to our beaches to reconsider missed chapters of Australia’s early heritage. Brodie turns the narratives of ‘exploration’ and ‘discovery’ round to take a better examine the indigenous peoples, the wider nearby scene, and what those encounters jointly inform. this is often the sweeping tale of larger Australasia and its peoples, a long-overdue problem to the parable that Australia’s tale all started in 1788.
