"Much research has gone to the making of this novel which is based on historical facts, documents and journals.  The main characters in it are true to history and often their actual words are quoted, for their journals and letters have survived.  Eleanor Dark brings them all to life again; the dogged honest Governor Phillip, on whose will-power Sydney was built; the foppish, witty but imperturbable lieutenant who accompanied him, Prentice, the flaming-haired convict and his native wife; Bennilong, the native who dreamed of the lands where the white sails came; Barangaroo, the other principle native character, simple, trusting, laughter-loving."
