Australians All Reviews
I found this book whilst browsing through the Australian History section at my local public library. My first impression was to flip through the book and seriously consider buying it. And I did. This is the history book that eclipses any and every Australian history book written for children. As you read my review please understand that I am only part way through the book. Ideally I would have liked to have finished the book prior to submitting a review, but it's going to take a few months for me to get to the end.
