Gaolbird - the true story of William Swallow Convict & Pirate
 
(0 reviews)  

This children's picture story book tells the outrageous and unbelievable true story of a convict pirate named Swallow from Simon Barnard, the 2015 CBCA winner of A-Z Convicts in Van Diemen's Land.

It’s 23 October 1821 and convict William Swallow stands on the deck of the Malabar for muster. He is wearing a canary yellow convict uniform and his legs are chained. He’s just completed the 121-day sea voyage from London to Hobart Town, but his wild and audacious adventures have barely begun. He’ll soon ditch the convict uniform and the chains, take part in a mutiny, become a pirate captain and fool the world in what just might be the most outrageous and unbelievable true story in Australia’s convict history.
