Win 1 of 25 copies of By Sea & Stars: The Story of the First Fleet by Trent Dalton

Originally published as a multi-part serial in The Australian, By Sea and Stars tells the historical story of the bloody, brutal and enthralling story of the First Fleet's epic journey. This historical piece on Australia’s past is written by one of our greatest writers, and is told from the point of view of the people who took part - willingly or unwillingly - in it.


Drawing from historical sources of the time, including letters and journals, Trent Dalton brings this epic voyage, and the stories of the men, women and children who went on it, to vivid life with his masterful storytelling.
