Includes bibliographical references (pages 220-227) and index.

What the Colonists Never Knew paints a vivid picture of what it was like to grow up Aboriginal in Sydney, alongside the colonists, from 1788 to the present. Peter Read's exploration of the history of Aboriginal Sydney is interwoven with Dennis Foley's memories of his own Gai-mariagal country, taking readers on a journey through the region's past. This book offers an honest account of the disappointment, pain and terror experienced by Sydney's First Peoples, and celebrates the survival of their spirit and their culture.
