Description - Stories of Life at Sydney Cove by Susan Boyer

Following the success of 'Across Great Divides: True Stories of Life at Sydney Cove' this new edition, 'Stories of Life at Sydney Cove', is for readers aged 10+. When thirteen year old convicts, John Hudson and Elizabeth Hayward, are sent to a mysterious land at the end of the world, they have no idea what life holds for them. At Sydney Cove there are no roads, no fences, no buildings...just wilderness. Later when Indigenous children Nanberry and Boorong come to live with the white strangers, they see life through different eyes. The mystery of a new world had begun and the lives of all involved would never be the same again. 'Stories of life at Sydney Cove' is a gripping narrative that weaves together the everyday experiences of convicts, soldiers and Aboriginal people with the events of history. These true stories are told through the words of those who really lived at Sydney Cove in 1788, and are so intriguing they read like fiction.
