Dancing with Strangers is Inga Clendinnen's seminal account of the moment in January 1788 when the First Fleet arrived in Sydney Harbour and a thousand British men and women, some of them convicts and some of them free, encountered the Australians living there. 'These people mixed with ours,' wrote a British observer after landfall, 'and all hands danced together.' What followed would shape relations between the peoples for the next two centuries.
