“Dark Emu Black Seeds: Agriculture or Accident?” By Bruce Pascoe

I’ve had several people recommend this book to me over the last few years, but also had some trouble tracking down a copy of it. After hearing the author speak at the free Open State festival in October my mind was blown. Fascinated, excited, ashamed at my ignorance, and upset about why this is not common knowledge that we celebrate as a nation. I bought the book at the festival. There’s a good Richard Fidler interview with Bruce Pascoe you can listen to if you are interested.

Started reading: 1st Dec 2017 (approx).
Finished: 10th Feb 2018 (approx).
My score/review: 10/10 - every Australian should read it.
