Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. Very Good condition. 122 pages Migrants from Britain to Australia in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries came with various forms of historical consciousness or accumulated historical memories, imparted by the education they had received. They also came with religious traditions. The original colonists in 1788 occupied a land that they considered belonged to nobody. The Aborigines who occupied this land had a civilisation based on 60,000 years of occupation and survival by hunting and gathering. The author reflects on his experiences travelling and living in the vast expanses of Australia since arriving here on 1956. He now has a historical consciousness that he considers an Australian historical consciousness derived from his experiences of over 50 years in this country - to find out why, you need to read the book! ID273501
