Summary
It was an incredible idea - to found a colony of convicts eight months' sail away from Great Britain. In a land with no cities, no farms, no rich spices. Just savage huts. No country had ever thought to send a colony so far away. Why on earth would you bother? Rotters and Squatters Cannibal convicts, murdering squatters, sea captains who kidnapped their crew, poor farmers forced off their land- they had all come to the colonies of New South Wales and Van Dieman's land to make better lives for themselves. And now there were new colonies and farms spreading around Australia. -- Publisher details
