"Marcus Clarke's powerful novel of the convict system is one of the great classics of Australian literature. Specially produced to tie in with the magnificent television series, this magnificent television series, this handsome condensed illustrated edition brings to vivid life the story of the convict Rufus Dawes, transported to the brutal penal colony of Port Arthur in Van Diemen's Land. It is the story of his love for Sylvia, the child who befriends him and who grows up into a beautiful, irresistible young woman, and of his dealings with Sylvia's husband, the sadistic Captain Frere - all set against a background of one of the darkest times in Australia's history."
