Product Description
 
The true story of Australia starts with a piece of land that went for a swim. About 200 million of years ago it floated away from Africa. Very, very, slowly. It was home to dinosaurs and giant animals, then the first Australians showed up and got comfortable.
And for a long time this wild and wonderful land was a mystery to the rest of the world. Until the English decided to make it the biggest jail ever . . .

Funny, heroic and tragic - the story of our country from prehistory to federation.The true story of Australia starts with a piece of land that went for a swim.
