This 'journal does something no other First Fleet journal does; it gives us a day-by-day account of a colony's struggle for survival' in Norfolk Island. Not least, King's Maori vocabulary. A major First Fleet journal, this is the second in the Australian Documents Library series. Edited by Paul G. Fidlon and R.J. Ryan.
