... accessible, compelling and riveting Review by Hilary
Dark Emu is a completely accessible, compelling and riveting account of pre-invasion Aboriginal agricultural systems, and more. Every page offered eye-opening revelations. By the end I felt deeply distressed by the wastage and loss of all that land knowledge and extraordinary methods resulting from British massacres of vast swathes of that culture. Is it too late for us to learn from Aboriginal people how to care for our wide and colourful land, and how to tread lightly on its surface?
Aboriginal culture, history and civilisation are so much more ancient, and advanced in countless ways, than any other on the planet, and it breaks my heart that we fail to pay that culture the respect it is due.
I want all my friends to read this book. I'll even buy it for them!
