The Forgotten Children
Fairbridge Farm School and its Betrayal of Britain's Child Migrants
Between 1938 and 1974, thousands of British children were sent to Australia for a better life. Drawing on survivors’ testimonies, this exposé uncovers the grim reality that met them: inadequate education, poor quality food, and physical and sexual abuse.
The Great Race
Described by The Times as 'an epic tale told concisely and confidently', this book recounts the European 'discovery' and initial exploration of Australia, then concentrates on the rivalry between Matthew Flinders of England and Nicolas Baudin of France in the quest to chart the coast of the Great South Land and compile the definitive map of the continent. Working from first-hand accounts including diaries, Hill celebrates the courage and determination that fuelled their danger-filled voyages.
