Editorial Reviews for this title:
One of the greatest 19th-century Australian novels and the grand epic of the transportation system, this novel charts the misfortune of Richard Divine, falsely accused of murder, through the worst Australian penal settlements, while retaining his humanity and spiritual dignity. So powerful is Clarke's representation of the brutality of transportation that more than a century later historians still struggle to disentangle fact from tragic fiction.
