You're History, Mate! by Paul Stafford

Book Description

Among all the legendary bushrangers, stoic explorers, genius inventors and upstanding politicians in Australian history, surely there must be some losers in the pack? There are, and You're History, Mate! has found them all! There's the explorer who claimed to have found an enormous reef of gold, then lost it again (and lost himself in the process); the men who sold their shares in BHP just days before the mineral discovery that made it the richest mining company in history; the ugliest, least successful and unluckiest colonial bushranger you could ever hope to find; and the politician who drank a glass of herbicide to prove it wasn't poisonous! There are plenty of sneaky facts among the stories, but kids will be laughing so hard they won't care that they're learning Australian history along the way. History as it should be taught!
