Summary
"The book provides readers with details about the type of work that convicts were forced to do, including first-hand accounts of life as an assigned convict; life in a female factory; the toil involved in transporting bricks and constructing buildings; and of working as part of a convict gang. There are also accounts of convicts who found themselves given positions of authority; and an explanation of tickets-of-leave and pardons."--Provided by publisher
