In 1788 Watkin Tench stepped ashore at Sydney Cove with the first fleet of convict ships sent from England. This curious young captain of the marines was a natural storyteller. His account of the infant colony is the first classic of Australian literature, and '1788' belongs on the bookshelf of all history lovers.
