Colour photographic front cover, showing a Granny Smith apple with a small Australian flag, against a black background with yellow and green titles to the front panel and backstrip. This book tells that it is not the convicts (and their jailers) who were the first white Australians but "... their bronzed, bare-toed children who were the first white Australians. Their special relationship with the aboriginal people taught them to embrace the bush as home -- something the parents rarely did. An intriguing new look at our history which puts us back into "our" story in a way that tells us who we are, and what we could be." -- from the rear panel blurb. A little rubbing to the book edges and lifting of the laminate to the lower left-hand corner of the new book panel. Browning of the text block edges and of the internal text.
