"The first novel of a huge, enthralling saga about the founding and rise of Australia.
In 1785, eleven ships set sail from Portsmouth, their ultimate destination Botany Bay, a region so remote that the only navigational guide to it was Gulliver's Travels.  Abroad were supplies for three years, soldiers, sailors, marines, civilians, medical officers, clergy and seven hundred convicts.  Among them, crowded in the holds of His Majesty's shabbier vessels, were Joe Cribb, arsonist, abortionist 'Leafy' Levi, and the beautiful actress and murderess Kitty Brandon.  Lucky to be alive, none of them had any idea of the horrors that lay ahead."
