Escape from Botany Bay,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Escape From Botany Bay: The True Story of Mary Bryant (Kindle Edition)
This is a true account that I have read of before but that didn't detract from reading it again by Gerald Hausman. It is a truly inspiring story of the human spirit, from being found guilty of a minor theft offence to being transported, via the imprisonment of a holding vessel moored in London, then forward to being transported to Australia.
Having escaped the horrors of imprisonment then to voyage in a small sailing boat to East Timor is a true life adventure that simply fills one with admiration at the bravery of this young woman.
