あらすじ・解説

Detailing the development of the prison and its outlying stations, including its dreaded coal mines and providing an account of the changing views to convict rehabilitation, Convict-Era Port Arthur focuses in on a number of individuals, telling the story through their eyes. Charles O'Hara Booth, a significant commandant of Port Arthur; Mark Jeffrey, a convict who became the grave digger on the Island of the Dead and William Thompson, who arrived just as the new probation system started and who was forced to work in the treacherous coal mines. 

Convict-Era Port Arthur will for the first time provide a comprehensive history of Port Arthur, its horrors and its changing role over a 50-year period. In gripping detail, using the experiences and words of the convicts, soldiers and administrators who spent time there, David W. Cameron brings to life these deeply miserable days.

Heart wrenching

I’ve been fascinated with the convict system since I was a child, growing up through the Australian bicentennial and the discovery of an ancestor who was at Port Arthur and other parole stations for 12 years. This book is close to the heart and by the end you are mentally drained by the misery it depicts but have a better understanding of the Australian psyche of survival and success. Truly amazing!

A great worthwhile read

the reader has a habit of pausing this at time makes the flow of the story a bit disjointed. that said this is a great read very much worth the time and effort.
