Summary

The convict women who built a continent..."A moving and fascinating story." -Adam Hochschild, author of King Leopold's Ghost The Tin Tickettakes readers to the dawn of the nineteenth century and into the lives of three women arrested and sent into suffering and slavery in Australia and Tasmania-where they overcame their fates unlike any women in the world.
