Summary
The Unlikely Story of Bennelong and Phillip is the second book in a series of books from Berbay Publishing exploring first settlement history in Australia. This extraordinary story about the friendship between Captain Arthur Phillip and the Aboriginal, Bennelong, is one of Australia's most important and intriguing stories, yet remains largely unknown. The background of first settlement in Australia (when the first fleet arrived) heightens the polarity between the two worlds of these two people - traditional Aboriginal culture and values versus European culture and values. The book has been beautifully written by Michael Sedunary complimented with the extraordinary artwork by celebrated Australian ceramic artist, Bern Emmerichs
Summary
Explores the friendship between Captain Arthur Phillip, one of the first settlers of Botany Bay, and Bennelong, an Aboriginal Australian who helped to bridge the gap between the two cultures
