Van Diemen's Land
 
(0 reviews)  

Almost half of the convicts who came to Australia came to Van Diemen's Land, where they found a land of bounty, a penal society, a kangaroo economy and a new way of life.

In this book, James Boyce shows how the convicts were changed by the natural world they encountered. Escaping authority, they soon settled away from the towns, dressing in kangaroo skin and living off the land. Behind the official attempt to create a Little England was another story of adaptation, in which the poor, the exiled and the criminal made a new home in a strange land.
