When 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.
