This month we read The Secret River by Kate Grenville.  While I enjoyed reading the story it made me feel so sad.  How horrible people were and are! I know that this is a work of fiction but still it is a researched novel, well written and very interesting.

After reading Dirt – The Erosion of Civilizations I want to know more about Aboriginal living – how they ate, how they lived, the harmony they had with Australia before the arrival of the convicts – as this book portrayed the harmony they had with the land.
