Australia Moments in History

Paperback

This is the story of the men and women who made Australia, and the events of our past that have shaped our future. Discover the endurance of the early pioneers; the friendship between James Morrill and an Aboriginal tribe; the extraordinary stamina of explorers Edward Eyre and Douglas Mawson; the benevolence of missionaries Cheong Cheok Hong and Caroline Chisholm; the ingenuity of inventor James Harrison and the courage of army officer Hugo Throssell. It also includes the extraordinary story of the Mabo case and the permanent changes to Aboriginal land rights; the tragic terrorist attacks in Bali; the outstanding achievement of Jessica Watson as she sailed solo around the world at the age of 16; and, the historical election of Australia's first female prime minister, Julia Gillard as well as the 2010/2011 Queensland floods. With its rich narrative and accessible format, Australia: Moments in History is the ideal means for anyone, young or old, to explore Australia's unique heritage and cultural diversity.
