Information
In 1787, the 28th year of the reign of King George III, the British Government sent a fleet to colonise Australia . . .

'The Fatal Shore' is an epic description of the brutal transportation of men, women and children out of Georgian Britain into a horrific penal system which was to be the precursor to the Gulag and was the origin of Australia.

'The Fatal Shore' is the prize-winning, scholarly, brilliantly entertaining narrative that has given its true history to Australia.
