Wyeth, pp. 225-26. A novel of the founding of the infamous penal colony in Australia, in 1788. (The story was filmed in 1953, starring Alan Ladd and James Mason.) Hugh Tallant, an American medical student wrongly imprisoned, tried at Newgate Prison in England for highway robbery, and sentenced for life, sails on the Charlotte, the first convict ship to Australia. His account of the long voyage to Botany Bay, the struggles of the convict settlers, and his eventual escape to England and pardon by the Crown, makes this a "rich and human story of Hogarthian strength and power. . . . [that] stands beside [Nordhoff and Hall's] famous Bounty Trilogy." N. B.
