9780027180886: Exploration into Australia (Exploration Into...Series)

One of a series which describes the cultural history of continents or regions through several centuries, this book explores the story of Australia from the earliest times through at least 5000 years of diverse and changing Aboriginal societies, to the time of its exploration by Asian and European travellers, and right up to the present day. The text describes Australia's swamps, deserts, coral reefs and tropical rain forests, the great Aboriginal trading routes, the voyages of Indonesian fishermen to Australia's northern coasts and the arrival of the First Fleet with its cargo of convicts. the book goes on to describe how European explorers are defeated by the vast deserts of Australia in their search for water, land for crops and livestock and gold.
