Australians All encompasses the history of our continent from the Ice Age to the Apology, from the arrival of the First Fleet to the Mabo Judgement. Brief accounts of the lives of real young Australians open up this chronological narrative. Some of the subjects of the eighty mini-biographies have become nationally or even internationally famous. Others were legends in their own families and communities. Meticulously researched, beautifully written and highly readable, Australians All helps us understand who we are, and how we belong to the land we all share. It also shows us who we might be.'Australians All is an outstanding history of Australia that captures the experiences of young people on this continent from the Ice Age to the Apology. Nadia Wheatley entwines her narrative with 80 judiciously chosen biographical snapshots that bring new insights to major events and themes in Australian history. The book's subject selection speaks to young people and gives them a voice in Australian history that is both a unique and outstanding achievement.' - From the judges of the NSW Premier's History Award'In Australian histories there is a particular group whose tales and presence and concerns are rarely narrated. Nadia Wheatley, that great writer, tells that wide-ranging story in a way so imaginative and colourful that it would attract any young person, and make young readers feel that many of their personal struggles have been faced before, by children of the past and present.' - Thomas Keneally
