How Aborigines Made Australia : Bill Gammage and Philip Jones
Adelaide Writers' Week - Wednesday, March 7 2012
West Stage, 1.15pm
Finding a way to make sense of Australia’s long history has taken the nation from terra nullius to deeply engaging histories of the pre-contact Aboriginal world. Bill Gammage’s extraordinary The Biggest Estate on Earth explodes the myth of the untamed wilderness. Phillip Jones’ Ochre and Rust is a radical rethinking of the frontier. Join them for a fascinating conversation about the rich history of this remote place.
