From highly respected, award-winning author Jackie French comes a fascinating interpretation of Australian history, focusing on how the land itself, rather than social forces, shaped the major events that led to modern Australia.
Reinterpreting the history that we think we all know – from the indigenous women who shaped the land, Terra Incognita and Eureka, to Federation, Gallipoli and beyond – Jackie French shows that to understand history, we need to understand our land.
She also shows that there's so much we don't understand about our history because we don't understand the way life was lived at the time. Eye-opening and unforgettable, Let The Land Speak will transform your view of Australian history.
