Very interesting on the first settlements in Australia as my family came on first fleet and went to Hawkesbury district so it was a great read for me
I heard about the book from a interview on the 702 ABC in Sydney . Anyone interested in Sydney history would enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Susan Boyer paints a balanced picture of the good, the bad and the ugly 28 December 2015

This book really helped me to understand what went on at Sydney Cove upon the arrival of the first fleet. Susan Boyer paints a balanced picture of the good, the bad and the ugly. Reading this book made me feel very sad about the ignorance of the English, and the missed opportunities to share the land rather than take it over through warlike tactics.
