Summary "By diving deeply into key moments - the voyage out, the disputes with Macquarie, the founding of missions - Sharp gets us to reimagine the world as Marsden saw it: always under threat from the Prince of Darkness, in need of 'a bold reprover of vice', a world written in the words of the King James Bible. Andrew Sharp takes us back into the nineteenth-century world, and an evangelical mind, to reveal the past as truly a foreign country"--Publisher information.
