Illustrated by Jaelyn Biumaiwai

Description

Be inspired and amazed by these incredible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander icons!

With colourful artwork and evocative writing, this book tells stories every Australian should know. Powerful and exciting: here are seven inspiring stories about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from history.

Amongst these are Patyegarang, a Darug woman who worked with a British officer of the First Fleet, teaching him words from local Aboriginal languages - together they made the first written record of any Aboriginal languages; Mohara Wacando-Lifu, a woman of Torres Strait Islander, Niue Islander and Papua New Guinea heritage and the first Indigenous woman to receive the Royal Humane Society's Gold Medal for bravery; Yarri and Jacky Jacky, who led the rescue of sixty-nine people during the Gundagai floods of 1852.

Each colourful spread in this illustrated book tells a compelling story.
