This book shows how a nation was founded not on free settlement or immigration but by criminal offenders who were transported to a ‘land beyond the sea’ where many went on to create new lives for themselves. Follow the story of greed, brutality, inhumanity, and occasional decency as a small group of people learn to cope with an environment utterly alien to them.
