    Description

    A completely accessible, compelling and riveting account of pre-invasion Aboriginal agricultural systems.

    Dark Emu argues for a reconsideration of the 'hunter-gatherer' tag for pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians and attempts to rebut the colonial myths that have worked to justify dispossession. Accomplished author Bruce Pascoe provides compelling evidence from the diaries of early explorers that suggests that systems of food production and land management have been blatantly understated in modern retellings of early Aboriginal history, and that a new look at Australia's past is required.

    Beautiful story of what used to be

    I really enjoyed the narrators relaxing voice. This story is devastatingly beautiful, who the people were and what they have endured to stay true to their old ways. I heard about this book on an environmental podcast which referred to it for survival foods in the growing climatic extremes. It was much more of a story than I expected, it was a journey through Aboriginal history. Their peace with nature will make you pause, the part about giving horses water almost made me cry at their inherent kindness without fear of the unknown. I listened to it while I cooked as that felt appropriate. Definitely going to listen to it again!

    Propaganda posing as scholarship

    Let me save you time reading this book. It can be summarised as Australian Aboriginals good, Europeans evil. With sloppy research, cherry picking of facts, and mere wishful thinking, the author presents a politically correct fantasy. Note that whenever facts are not available that supports his argument, the author assumes that's because evil Europeans destroyed the evidence. Whenever a settler’s journal notes something positive about the natives, it is accepted without question. Yet whenever a settler’s journal remains silent or says something negative, its because evil Europeans are biased. This isn't scholarship - it’s mere propaganda.
