Summary
The most comprehensive biography yet of a towering figure of Australian colonial history Lachlan Macquarie is credited with shaping Australia's destiny, transforming the harsh, foreboding penal colony of New South Wales into an agricultural powerhouse and ultimately a functioning society. He was also responsible for the death of several Aboriginal men, women and children, brutally killed in a military operation intended to create terror among local Indigenous people. So was Macquarie the man who sowed the seeds of a great nation, or a tyrant who destroyed Aboriginal resistance? In the most comprehensive biography yet of this fascinating colonial governor, acclaimed author Grantlee Kieza chronicles the life and times of a poor Scottish farm boy who fought wars on five continents, clawed his way to the top of the British military after suffering a broken heart and who saw magnificent potential in the prison refuse sent to the penal colonies of the Great South Land
