The Junior Atlas of Indigenous Australia, published by Macquarie, is a unique tool for students in upper primary and early secondary years to explore and gain understanding of the lives and cultures of Australia's First Peoples. The Atlas visually represents patterns of human activities in space and time, from over 60,000 years ago to the present time. It covers an extensive range of topics, such as deep history, Indigenous mapping, material culture, cultural and religious life, art, sport, language, environment and Country, social justice, education and health and wellbeing. The 130 maps, which form the core of the book, are supplemented by easy-to-read explanatory text and over 165 photographs, artworks, illustrations, charts and graphs. The Junior Atlas of Indigenous Australia is a collaborative publication between the Australian National University, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Macquarie Dictionary. It is based upon the award-winning Macquarie Atlas of Indigenous Australia and the Macquarie Atlas of Indigenous Australia Second Edition. The content has been adapted to suit a younger audience. It includes contributions from more than 40 authors from a wide variety of places and professions - from universities, the arts world, Indigenous organisations and the public service. An independent review of the Junior Atlas of Indigenous Australia by Professor Marcia Langton and Professor Aaron Corn of the University of Melbourne can be read here: This is a specially formatted fixed-layout ebook that retains the look and feel of the print book.
