Finally someone has written about the Australian Aboriginal in a positve way. They were a people who lived within the environment, controlling it in the way they used fire, but not destroying it. My education about the history of Australia commenced when the British overran the supposedly none existing black people of Australia. Well researched. Used information from authentic explorers documents. Aboriginals lived in better structures than stick huts. Our present day Aboriginal are nothing like their ancestors. Their ancestors would be horrified as to how their future generations have deterioated thanks to the British. Well done to the author for the new edition.
