Product Details

Drawing its material from the appealing but authentic annals of Tasmania's haunted past, it tells of a man who was born to wealth and comfort yet is transported to the convict island on a murder charge of which he is innocent - and against which he cannot defend himself without betraying his own mother.

Amid searing unforgettable descriptions of his sufferings at port Arthur, Macquarie harbor and the infamous Norfolk island the tale unfolds a disturbing and brutal panorama of people and events. Yet excitement never flags as convicts and overseers all play their parts in the drama - vying for the readers attention with floggings, rape, mutiny, disease, escape and even cannibalism.
