Once Aboriginal people were no longer able to tend their country, it became overgrown and vulnerable to the hugely damaging bushfires we now experience.nnWith The Biggest Estate on Earth, Bill Gammage explodes the myth that pre-settlement Australia was an untamed wilderness. His rewriting of the history of a continent has huge implications for us today.nnPresented with Hornsby Central Library.\n\nhttp://archive.swf.org.au/index.php?option=com_2012&task=view_detail&agid=3281&Itemid=124\n\nParticipants: Bill Gammage\nCost: Free, bookings essential 9847 6614 library@hornsby.nsw.gov.au\nDisabled Access: Yes\nHearing Loop : No DTSTAMP:20120515T083000Z DTSTART:20120515T083000Z DTEND:20120515T093000Z END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
