Join two children as they journey through the history of Southeast Asia - the fascinating lands linked to each other and Australia by the seas and monsoon winds. Share with them the discovery of a world filled with traders, adventurers and conquerors, the struggles for independence they witness, and the exciting arrival of the new millennium with its hopes and challenges.
This is a story that started 70,000 years ago - a history that includes all of us.
Written by former Australian Children's Laureate, Jackie French, and social historian Emeritus Professor Virginia Hooker, this fascinating book has been exquisitely illustrated by the award-winning artist Mark Wilson.
A beautifully illustrated book that will engage both children and adults alike and provides insights into the fascinating region of Southeast Asia.
