Details

George Barrington, 1755-1840, a notorious English pickpocket, was sentenced to seven years transportation to Botany Bay for his crimes. In return for his aid in suppressing a mutiny aboard the transport ship, he was released in 1792 and became superintendant of convicts, holding a position of respect within the colony. Within these pages lies the true account of his life, reprinted in his exact written words, with minor spelling adjustments to aid reading.

With its descriptions of crime and punishment in England; a sea journey fraught with peril and mutiny; settlement in Sydney Cove and the struggles of life in a new, undeveloped land; the unpredictable and often hazardous interaction with the Aboriginal population and their fascinating ways. It also brings to life such famous people as Bennelong, Governor Philip, Governor Hunter and Francis Grose. This is an enthralling saga written in the easy, compelling style.

Hard cover,120pgs. Very good, former owner’s name and donation note within. .
