    DescriptionWhen the First Fleet sailed for NSW in 1787, the British government ordered Governor Phillip to preserve the cattle, sheep and hogs he brought with him but not the environment he found. Yet Phillip and his officers were quick to try to protect Australia's land. This book challenges the equation of colonization with destruction.

    Review quote
    "This is a rare, enlightening and beautifully presented book. Seize it. There are only 2000 copies in this edition. It could vanish, like the heritage it celebrates, at any minute." --"The Australian"
