Miller, Frances A.
Approximately 100 novels and other fictional works featuring Australian settings and themes are cited in this annotated bibliography. Appropriate for ages 10-15, the books were chosen for a non-Australian reading audience interested in learning more about the country. Books are listed under the following topics: Australia in the beginning, convict colony, discovery of gold, the new century (1900-1950), outback settings, country settings, city/town settings, humorous tall tales, fantasy and childhood, and short story collections. Five nonfiction books are also cited. Each entry lists author, title, publisher, age level, and includes a brief synopsis. A glossary of Australian terms is included. (KC)
