AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In 1788, Thomas Kendall, a naive nineteen-year-old sentenced to transportation for burglary, finds himself bound for Sydney Town in the penal colony of New South Wales. Discarding allegiance to the country that has disowned him, Thomas, an honest man at heart, seizes a second chance and begins a new life in the wild and lawless land beneath the Southern Cross.' (Libraries Australia)

Notes

  • Dedication: To Susan J Mackie, the most understanding, most encouraging and most demanding friend a writer could have. Thanks Suzie, for the imprisonment, for the delivery of writer's lunches and for the homegrown blooms of inspiration.
