Its Land and Its People, 69 pp. by Mick Woiwod, Andrew Ross Museum, 2002
Kangaroo Ground can be said to have two stories: that of its extensive geological formation and Aboriginal occupation and that of its later European settlement. Of the two, the former is by far the most gripping and by far the longest. It’s a story of belching volcanoes, land uplift and of wombat-like creatures the size of hippopotamuses. This book tells of how Aboriginal people transformed its landscape with fire and by doing so made it a safer place for themselves and ourselves to live.
