Rivers and Resilience traces the history of Aboriginal people along Sydney’s Georges River from the early periods of British and Irish settlement to the present. It offers a dramatically new approach to Aboriginal history in an urban setting in Australia. Leading historians investigate the continuities and changes experienced by Aboriginal communities in this densely settled suburban area where the continued presence of Aboriginal people, including traditional owners, is largely - and wrongly - ignored.

The stories that reveal the way the Georges River has been central to ongoing indigenous culture are beautifully told and illustrated.

The George's river so deserved this focused study as did the aboriginal culture that shaped its history. its a book that catapults you through the ages, sharp descriptions of characters and settings that really place you there on the banks of the river . when you read this book and happen to live next to the Georges river ,you then look at it differently......and appreciate its source of sustenance for past people's

Answered many questions about continuation of the Aboriginal population of Botany Bay and Georges River after 1788. There was also some reference to Port Hacking, but not much about its Aboriginal population before 1788, however I know that this was not the subject of this book. Please inform me if there is simular research on the Port Hacking Aborigenies! I do rugular bushcare along its shores and am impressed about Aboriginal sites come across.
