Customer Review

on 20 July 1999
Blows away any thoughts that these unfortunates were criminals. The historical precedent for transportation are explained, as well as the social conditions prevailing in England at the time. One cannot but have the most profound feelings for these unfortunates who were to lay the foundations for a country that has one of the highest living standards in the modern world. I would recommend it as a book of reference for any student covering the period of white settlement of Australia. It is a pity that Mr Hughes allows his anti-monarchist feelings to show in an otherwise excellent account.
