About This Book

Personal journals and archival documents contribute to this accessible account of the hardships, hopes, and failures of the people - officials, convicts, settlers and original inhabitants - who made up the improbable population of Australia in the years immediately after the 1786 arrival of Captain Arthur Philip and the Royal Navy. The skills of a well-regarded historian and elegant novelist combine in this insightful and moving narrative of people and events.
