Thomas Keneally is best known for his 1982 novel Schindler’s Ark that was adapted into the Oscar-winning film Schindler’s List by Steven Spielberg. Keneally, however, is also a prolific writer of history and Australiana – producing works such as Australia: Beyond the Dreamtime, A Commonwealth of Thieves and Our Republic.
Now, in the follow up to his widely acclaimed book Australians: Origins to Eureka, Keneally has written a second instalment covering Australian history until World War I – Australians: Eureka to the Diggers.
