Summary
"The book provides an introduction to some of the more notorious convicts who came to Australia. Some were renowned because they escaped from captivity, others because they became bushrangers, and still others because they became respectable members of society as architects, doctors and businesspeople. But the one thing these convicts had in common, which is evident from their accounts, is that they faced an environment they were unused to and for which they were unprepared."--Provided by publisher
