LIV­ING WITH THE LO­CALS

Australian Geographic Outdoor - - Outdoor Books -

John May­nard and Vic­to­ria Hask­ins re­veal the amaz­ing story of es­caped con­victs and ship­wreck sur­vivors who were res­cued and taken into in­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties in Aus­tralia in the nine­teenth cen­tury. It’s a crack­ing read and a real eye-opener in re­gards to first-hand ac­counts of in­dige­nous life and cul­ture in the early stages of Euro­pean con­tact.
