The Upside-Down History of Down Under


By the acclaimed creators of Wicked Warriors, Evil Emperors and Dragons, Devils and Rebels. The true story of Australia starts with a piece of land that went for a swim.

Millions of years ago it floated away from Africa. Very, very, slowly. It was home to dinosaurs and giant animals, until the first Australians showed up and got comfortable.

This wild and wonderful land was a mystery to the rest of the world. Then the English decided to make it the biggest jail ever . . . Experience the story of our country from prehistory to federation in 1901.
