Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe

$35.00 inc. gst

Dark Emu, Black Seeds: Agriculture or Accident? is Bruce Pascoe’s ground breaking book, featured in Pip issue 5. We reckon this one is a must-read for anyone undertaking permaculture in Australia, as it sheds light on a forgotten history of ancient agriculture in this land.

NSW Premier’s Literary Award for Book of the Year 2016

Dark Emu puts forward an argument for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer tag for precolonial Aboriginal Australians.

The evidence insists that Aboriginal people right across the continent were using domesticated plants, sowing, harvesting, irrigating and storing – behaviours inconsistent with the hunter-gatherer tag. Gerritsen and Gammage in their latest books support this premise but Pascoe takes this further and challenges the hunter-gatherer tag as a convenient lie.
