The Birth of Sydney

ebook

The Birth of Sydney is a spectacular and brilliant anthology of writing about the creation of Australia's oldest city.

With Tim Flannery as our guide, we hear the voices of Arthur Phillip, Surgeon John White, Charles Darwin, Anthony Trollope, Elizabeth Macarthur, Nat Gould, Mark Twain and a host of others as they tell their stories of a metropolis, built on one of the world's most spectacular harbours, which began life as a dump for convicts.

'This selection of eyewitness accounts of the early history of white settlement, edited and introduced by Flannery, will seduce the most reluctant reader into a passion for Australian history.' Australian Financial Review
