Others were legends in their own families and communities. Meticulously researched, beautifully written and highly readable, Australians All helps us understand who we are, and how we belong to the land we all share. It also shows us who we might be. Reflects a commitment to the issues of reconciliation, social justice and the conservation of the environment
