“Australia’s story is comparatively short; but in every way it is as romantic as any history in the world.  From the first landing on Botany Bay till the present time, Meredith Hooper’s survey is a colourful, co-ordinated account of the events which have made what was once a penal colony a major participant in the modern world.  Cook, Sturt, Eyre, Caroline Chisholm, Flynn and Kingsford Smith are just a few names in a long list of pioneering men and women you will meet in this absorbing, easy-to-read text.  Strikingly illustrated by Elaine Haxton, The Story of Australia is a picture history for every junior library.”
