Being Australian I am not a huge fan of Biographies but in case it might interest someone. I have a degree with majors in History and Prehistory. I began researching the story I have written about in the mid 1980's. The research has been off and on since then. Next year will be the 160th year since these events so I decided it was now time to record them. I have lots of interests including sport and horses. I'm also a DIY fan and have built massive courtyards at home. I hope you enjoy reading my book.
The Irish convict in this true story battles with authority across three continents. The story unites major events from convict life in Australia and the gold rushes of Victoria and California. It includes Australia’s first ever Escort Robbery; a great mystery of the sea; executions; corruption and crime. A truly international story with a pirate and a supposed American Civil War hero.
