My most recent books are the series: Gold! Hidden Stories of Australia’s Past.
These are five (5) standalone books by myself, Marji Hill.
I am an Australian author of more than 70 books. In this series, I explore themes to do with Australia’s First Nations people, the Chinese in Australia, the multicultural melting pot, Australian identity, democratic rights, and law and order.
Telling the truth about what went on in Australia’s past brings to light the colonial conflict and near dispossession of First Nations people.
Not only what happened to the First Nations people, but the Chinese presence on the goldfields also gave birth to racist, and anti-Chinese sentiment resulting in race-based migration restrictions and the White Australia policy.
Many in Australian society today don’t understand the facts of our history.
It’s only by acknowledging the truth of our past that we can heal the wounds. Only then can we move forward together into a better future.
