The birth of Melbourne
This anthology traces Melbourne's first settlement through to Federation revealing the allure, or otherwise, of a place made rich through farming and gold.

Contributors include Matthew Flinders, John Batman, Alexandre Dumas, Marcus Clarke, Anthony Trollope, and Rudyard Kipling.
