Abstract:

"Disinherited and driven from his home in England when he discovers the secret of his true parentage, young Richard Devine changes his name to Rufus Dawes but is then falsely accused of murdering his real father. Transported to the notorious Port Arthur in Van Dieman's land "for the term of his natural life", Dawes is gradually transformed from the bright and witty young Englishman into a hardened and desperate convict. He is unafraid to attempt the most daring escapes or brutal clashes with fellow prisoners and his jailers-including the cruel Lt. Maurice Frere or the troubled Reverend North. "Dawes'" last hope for vindication is his passion for Sylvia, daughter of prison Commandment, Major Vickers. That hope is put to the ultimate challenge by her own dark secrets"--Container.
