In consultation with communities, the book's author, Corey Tutt, tells us of many deadly feats – from bush medicine to bush trackers – that are today considered 'science', and introduces us to many amazing scientists, both past and present. The breadth of ‘sciences’ is incredible with six main chapters covering astronomy, engineering, forensic science, chemistry, land management and ecology. The first scientists passed on the lessons of the land, sea and sky to the future scientists of today through stories, song and dance, and many of these lessons are now shared in this book.

The book features beautiful and colourful illustrations from Blak Douglas, which make this book even more engaging to both children an adults alike. 

The book comes with a signed bookplate from the author. 

Recommended for ages seven to 12.
