AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Mary Bryant was a Cornishwoman transported with the First Fleet for highway robbery. After three years in Sydney, she masterminded the first escape from the nascent colony. Her story was the subject of an ABC television drama in the 1960s and a telemovie in 2005, and she has appeared as a minor character in several books. Arguably none capture the extensive detail found in Meg Keneally’s latest, Fled, in which Bryant has been fictionalised as Jenny Trelawney.' (Introduction)
