Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 052284054X, Hardcover)

This third volume takes the story of Australia to the momentous discovery of gold and the separation of Victoria from New South Wales. The story is one of destruction as well as construction, the destruction of the Aborigines and the construction of an essentially English bourgeois society and the taming of an alien and seemingly sterile land along the coastal country.

This is not a general Australian history and it is not a definitive or quantitative analysis. It is a work of art, a living and breathing account of the remaking of a primitive continent, history come alive.
