At the center of the story is Arthur Phillips, an ambitious captain in the Royal Navy assigned the formidable task of organizing the expedition to Australia and establishing a colony comprised mainly of unskilled and malcontent criminals and petty thieves, many determined to overcome their pasts and begin anew. Keneally re-creates the grueling overseas voyage, a hellish journey that claimed many lives. As governor, Phillips took on the challenges of dealing with unruly convicts, disgruntled officers, a bewildered, sometimes hostile native population, as well as such serious matters as food shortages and disease. In the end Phillips emerges as a governor driven by a yearning for recognition and advancement, yet possessed of a social conscience rare for his time.--From publisher description+-+K40960038593131ocn001437605book19410.37Dark, EleanorThe timeless landHistoryFictionBook one of a triology Maps on endpapers2763ocn016811498book19870.59Frost, AlanArthur Phillip, 1738-1814 : his voyagingHistoryNaval historyBiography2151ocn057382389book20050.39Walker, MikeA long way homeHistoryBiography"A Long Way Home tells the incredible and heart rending story of Mary and of the two extraordinary men whose lives became entangled with hers; the naval spy and brilliant seaman, Captain Arthur Phillip, who founded the first colony in Australia, and James Boswell, rake and biographer, who, at the end of a misspent life, found a cause worth fighting for."--BOOK JACKET+-+81984552951726ocn009380809book18990.73Becke, LouisAdmiral Phillip; the founding of New South Wales1684ocn008551672book19380.50Eldershaw, M.

Were they carrying spirit persons, or human beings? Indigenous Australians met the British for the first time on January 26, 1788. Bennelong was conscripted as a negotiator, and though differences between the two groups were immense, apprehension quickly turned to curiosity. This documentary describes Bennelong's unlikely bond with Governor Arthur Phillip and the eventual deterioration of good will as the newcomers spread out across the land. Phillip founded the settlement of Sydney, Bennelong visited London, and Gadigals died of chicken pox in the thousands.
