'The story of Australia's resistance hero, Pemulwuy, who kept British settlement around Sydney restricted for 12 years 1790-1802.' (Source: GoodReads website)
Dedication: The British landed at the bay of Kamay on the east coast of Australia in 1788. Governor King is credited with breaking the Australian resistance in 1805. This novel is dedicated to those first Australians who fought and gave their lives against an invader.
This novel is especially dedicated to two remarkable Australians. The first is Pemulwuy, the man who led the resistance between 1790 and 1802, and in whose blood the city of Sydney and, indeed, modern Australia were built. The second is Charles Nelson Perkins, whose spirit and determination are the essence of modern Australia's identity.
