Beth: Story of a Child Convict

Beth: Story of a Child Convict

$24.95 GST

A story of the First Fleet, from the acclaimed author of MY MOTHER’S EYES and ANGEL OF KOKODA.

Beth is a child convict, caught stealing on the streets of London and sent to Australia on the First Fleet. Through Beth’s story, we discover the unbearable hardships those first convicts suffered, not only on the long journey to Sydney Cove but also in the two years of near-famine following their arrival. The story also explores the new arrivals’ relationship with the Indigenous population, and the devastation that the Europeans brought with them.

But through Beth’s experiences we also see the sense of hope that many in the new colony held for the future, and how they survived – and in some cases thrived. HB 32 pages
