I find it quite amusing that Aussies consider their 'upper class' those that are direct decendants of prisoneres sent to AU by the English. We try to hide that info from our neighborns and friends. I also find it interesting that the Aussies have done to their native people the same as we have done to ours. Not a proud moment in either's history.
There is a series of fictional books about the settling of Austrailia. I read about three of them and could never find the next one in the series. I should go back and reread them in hopes of being able to finish the series. Will have to do a Google search. I don't remember the author. The settling of both continents are so similar.
