"Continents shape men as surely as men shape continents, and rugged, restive Australia has bred a people to match its perverse grandeur.  The country's short history dates only from the end of the American Revolution.
Searching the world for a place to send prisoners from overcrowded jails, Britain decided on empty Australia.  The First Fleet - loaded with convicts and a contingent of freemen, Australia's first settlers - sailed into Sydney Cove in 1788.  The men and women aboard, and others who followed, gradually transformed their new home into the vigorous young nation of today."
