An extraordinary volume--even a masterpiece--about the early history of Australia that reads like the finest of novels. Hughes captures everything in this complex tableau with narrative finesse that drives the reader ever-deeper into specific facts and greater understanding. He presents compassionate understanding of the plights of colonists--both freemen and convicts--and the Aboriginal peoples they displaced. One of the very best works of history I have ever read.From the Publisher:
"A brilliant and enduring achievement...history of the highest order combining thorough research with vivid narrative and thoughtful assessment."--Arthur M. Schlesinger
