'Australians All is an outstanding history of Australia that captures the experiences of young people on this continent from the Ice Age to the Apology. Nadia Wheatley entwines her narrative with 80 judiciously chosen biographical snapshots that bring new insights to major events... and themes in Australian history...The book's subject selection speaks to young people and gives them a voice in Australian history that is both a unique and outstanding achievement.' - From the judges of the NSW Premier's History Award..'In Australian histories there is a particular group whose tales and presence and concerns are rarely narrated...Nadia Wheatley, that great writer, tells that wide-ranging story in a way so imaginative and colourful that it would attract any young person, and make young readers feel that many of their personal struggles have been faced before, by children of the past and present.' - Thomas Keneally..
