The Queensland Literary Awards celebrate and promote outstanding Australian writers. The Prize for History recognises an outstanding non-fiction history book by an Australian writer. In Into the Heart of Tasmania, Rebe Taylor tells a story of discovery and realisation. One man's ambition to rewrite the history of human culture inspires an exploration of the controversy stirred by Tasmanian Aboriginal history. It brings to life how Australian and British national identities have been fashioned by shame and triumph over the supposed destruction of an entire race. To reveal the beating of Aboriginal Tasmania is to be confronted with a history that has never ended.
