This ground breaking ecological history of Australasia will enrich the understanding of anyone who wonders what the future holds for humanity.

This is the story of how human beings have consumed the resources they need for their own future. It examines the original future eaters who were the first people to leave the Afro-Asian homeland and travel down the chain of islands to Australasia and became the Aboriginal.
