Opening up the SouthBook - 2006
Taking an in-depth approach to the study of the exploration of Australia, this series closely examines the subject from early European mapping of the coastline to the inland expeditions of the 1800s. Topics discussed include navigation techniques and equipment and how the explorers managed their supplies. Primary source materials are used extensively throughout the books and, among other things, provide information on the impact of early contact and colonisation on the lives of Indigenous Australians.
