1788 The Brutal Truth of the First Fleet
Never before or since has there been an experiment quite as bold as this. Eleven of the tiniest ships sailed for eight months over the roughest seas, carrying fifteen hundred people, food for two years and all the equipment needed to build a colony of convicts in a land completely beyond their experience and imagination.

The Making of Australia
This is the story of how a struggling convict settlement grew into six dynamic colonies and then the remarkable nation of Australia.
In his latest book, David Hill traces the story of our nation from its European beginnings to Federation. When James Cook landed on the east coast of Australia, the rest of the world had some idea of how empty, vast and wild this continent was, but so little was known of it that in 1788 most people thought it was two lands.David Hill
