Crime, Punishment and Redemption - a Norfolk Island convict's life

Crime, Punishment and Redemption - a Norfolk Island convict's life
 
(0 reviews)  

This is perhaps the only extant diary ever written during the Australian penal era whilst its convict writer was imprisoned. John Ward, writing whilst incarcerated on Norfolk Island but formerly a groom to an officer gentleman, tells a story of thwarted love that he claims led him to a life of crime including theft, sexual assault and more. This book is an insight into the criminal mind, ably examined by author June Slee and gives a glimpse into 19th-century aristocratic life from a servant's perspective.

This is an out-of-print book; it is in USED but generally good condition. Please contact the bookshop, Just Tassie Books at The Book Cellar, for additional detailed photos of the actual book and dustjacket and a description of condition.
