An eye opening book into the complexity of Indigenous history - and the shame brought to us 'new' Australians because of our ignorance. The book details methods of production, storage, and usage of grains and other food. Examples are given of sophisticated fish traps where the technology was shared from one side of the country to the other. Settlers saw villages of houses along rivers - be-lying the myth that aboriginal people did not settle anywhere. Story lines enabled up to 200 nations to live together without any evidence of mass slaughter or war. A must read to be informed.
