“During the first 80 years of Australia’s history, rascals, ruffians, and rebels of all descriptions were transported to Sydney Cove.  Sentenced for crimes ranging from stealing a yard of cloth to abducting a Quaker heiress or leading a rebellion in Ireland, convicts were forced to wait at His Majesty’s pleasure in the hell-hole prisons of England, then to face the dreadful sea voyage, fraught with danger, before even arriving at the notorious penal colony at Sydney.
With indefatigable and meticulous research, Frank Clune has pieced together the lives of nine of these miscreants in this colourful and fascinating book.”
