People have been visiting and living in the Victorian Grampians, also known as Gariwerd, for thousands of generations. They have both witnessed and caused vast environmental transformations in and around the ranges. "Gariwerd: A History of the Grampians" explores the geological and ecological significance of the mountains and combines research from across disciplines to tell the story of how humans and the environment have interacted, and how the ways people have thought about the environments of the ranges have changed through time. In this new account, historian Benjamin Wilkie examines how Djab wurrung and Jardwadjali people and their ancestors lived in and around the mountains, how they managed the land and natural resources, and what kinds of archaeological evidence they have left behind over the past twenty thousand years. He explores the history of European colonisation in the area from the middle of the nineteenth century and considers the effects of this on both the first people of Gariwerd and the environments of the ranges and their surrounding plains in western Victoria. The book covers the rise of science, industry and tourism in the mountains, and traces the eventual declaration of the Grampians National Park in 1984. Finally, it examines more recent debates about the past, present and future of the park, including over its significant Indigenous history and heritage.

Van Diemen s Land

Almost half of the convicts who came to Australia came to Van Diemen's Land. There they found a land of bounty and a penal society, a kangaroo economy and a new way of life. In this book James Boyce shows how the convicts were changed by the natural world they encountered. Escaping authority, they soon settled away from the towns, dressing in kangaroo-skin and living off the land. Behind the official attempt to create a Little England was another story of adaptation, in which the poor, the exiled and the criminal made a new home in a strange land. This is their story, the story of Van Diemen's Land. This is a book filled with new facts and new ideas about one of the most dramatic episodes in British colonialism. It tells of changing relations between bushrangers and lieutenant governors, convicts and Aborigines, and the growth of a unique society. Its focus is less on how the convict settlers of Van Diemen's Land changed their new environment, than on how it changed them. The island was not only the convicts' prison, it was their one source of hope. In Van Diemen's Land, James Boyce goes beyond the history wars to shed new light on the early life of colonial Australia.

Black Pioneers is an important new edition of With the White People, Henry Reynolds' challenging account of the role of Aboriginal and Islander people in the exploration and development of colonial Australia. In this book, Henry Reynolds debunks the notion that indigenous peoples have contributed nothing towards that creation of a prosperous modern society, that modern Australia rests on the sturdy foundations put down in the nineteenth century by the European pioneers. Black Pioneers pays tribute to the labour and skill of the thousands of black men, women and children who worked for the Europeans in a wide range of occupations: as interpreters, concubines, trackers, troopers, servants, nursemaids, labourers, stockworkers and pearl-divers. Some of their intriguing stories are here revealed.
